A Russian news anchor named Linarte was delivering the news last week when a very friendly-seeming black lab crashed the live broadcast. Turns out, she's "actually a cat lady."

"I’ve got a dog here," she says in Russian, clearly struggling to stay calm. "What is this dog doing in the studio?"

She doesn't get answers. And for some reason no one comes to retrieve the dog. Eventually Linarte freaks out, in a very controlled, newscaster-y kind of way, and her reaction has gone viral.

You can watch it here:


It seems Linarte and the dog were finally able to reach some kind of peace accord, as Linarte gave the dog a pat on the head before revealing "I actually prefer cats."

Hopefully this poor dog doesn't understand Russian because that is just harsh.
