Everything seemed to be going well during the live address, except for one small thing. At one point during the address, the face of one of the President’s dogs appeared in the video for a split second. Prior to the dog’s the split second appearance, viewers were wondering what the president’s right hand was doing, and why his jacket kept popping open, since the live broadcast only showed the president from the waist up.
Turns out there was a lot going on behind the scenes during the live broadcast. As the President spoke to the press, one of his Bernese Mountain Dogs came up to him and started demanding his attention, oblivious of the fact that the President was handling serious matters.
The President handled the distraction well, and save for the blink-and-miss-it-appearance, most people would not have noticed anything. However, a behind-the-scenes video shared later on social media shows the president offering his hand for the dog to nibble on, thus keeping the dog occupied while still delivering his speech.
It is this video that has left netizens wowed and falling in love with the 7-month-old dog, who is named Misneach. Viewers are swooning over the puppy’s love for his owner and amazed at the President’s ability to maintain his composure and continuing to give his speech, while at the same time giving his dog the attention he wanted.
