An ecstatic black lab has brought some much-needed positivity to the news.

A broadcast by Russian news channel MIR 24 is going viral after the newsreader was interrupted by a surprise guest.

Their unsuspecting journalist was reporting on a demolition and renovation project in Moscow when a black lab joined her at the desk, suddenly making it a news team.

Desperate to get on the air, the black lab jumped up to make sure he was in the shot, and barked what must have been a very important message.

He then hopped up on the desk to file his report, where he received an awkward pat from his co-host.

Who’s a good boy? We’ll find out after the break…
