President of Ireland’s dog stole the spotlight during the leader’s interview with broadcaster RTE on Sunday as he begged for attention from its owner, Michael D. Higgins.
A feisty 7-month-old Bernese Mountain dog has grabbed photographers’ sight after calling for his owner’s attention despite the fact that the president was in the middle of a national interview.

The Irish president was paying tribute to his friend, actor Tom Hickey, whose death was announced a day before.
The president’s team has shared the sweet clip of the dog, Misneach, who only wanted to be petted by his owner, on Instagram with a caption that read: “Behind the scenes at Áras an Uachtaráin.”
