Needy dog crashes at-home weather forecast for some pets

Working from home is difficult, especially

when your job requires you to be on camera.

For proof of this, look no further

than meteorologist Paul Dellegatto.

While he was delivering a live weather

forecast from home on April 16, his dog Brody

decided to join him and ask for some pets.

“The maps aren’t gonna move because he

just whacked the computer with his head,”

an exasperated Dellegatto tells both viewers

and the cameraman filming from outside.

“That wasn’t very smart,” he then says to

Brody, who has no idea what he’s saying.

“Didn’t mean to keep you up,” Dellegatto

jokes when Brody yawns during his forecast.

“Next time, buddy, we’re gonna eat after this".

Just when Dellegatto thinks he’s in the clear,

Brody strolls over to the window and tries to say hi

to the cameraman, Craig, who’s stationed outside.

“He’s jumping up looking for Craig

outside the window,” Dellegatto says

as Brody takes over the screen.

“We don’t need to see that forecast

map. We’ll just look at Brody,” one of

Dellegatto’s coworkers says jokingly.

A clip of this hilarious moment posted to

Twitter by reporter Andrew Feinberg has

already received more than 175,000 likes.

In the comments, people joked that

they have “no choice but to stan”.

“I want to see everyone in their pajamas

with their pets and a glass of wine

telling me how stupid everything is”.

“Things that are awesome about this:

1. He clearly loves Brody even when the dog

is disruptive. 2. Physical distancing with Craig

via the window. 3. Craig knows what content

we want and focuses on the dog”.

Even “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill chimed

in, writing, “One of the only things I like about

the lockdown is being able to see what

everybody’s homes look like. That, & dogs

photobombing the weather report, of course”.

Many eagle-eyed viewers were quick to point out

an easy-to-miss detail about Dellegatto’s at-home

set-up: On his desk, he has a framed photo of Brody.

“You don’t truly love your pets if you don’t

have prominently displayed, framed pictures

of them in your house,” one person joked
