It looks like the forecast’s calling for fur, and a lot of it! At least that was the case in New Hampshire when a meteorologist for local news station WMUR-TV was unexpectedly interrupted by a massive, fluffy dog.
During a weekend forecast, meteorologist Josh Judge was shocked to see a fluffy Newfoundland dog named Bella walking behind him live on air. Check out the video below to see Bella’s surprising cameo.
“The sunshine is increasing and there is a dog behind me,” Judge said while laughing. “OK. All right, so it’s not the dog days of summer just yet, but it will be at least warmer than you’d expect for this time of year.”
Apparently, Bella belongs to WMUR weekend anchor Amy Coveno. She had planned to feature the lovable Newfoundland in an upcoming report about veterinarians, but it looks like her fluff ball wanted to swoop in and steal the show earlier than expected.
“So the ‘behind the scenes’ story is that I had no idea Amy had done a ‘take your dog to work day’… so seeing her dog suddenly walk behind me this morning really caught me off guard!” Judge posted to Facebook.
Coveno responded to Judge’s Facebook post with a tweet writing, “And this is why we don’t allow dogs in the studio… Thank you for rolling with it @joshjudgewmur.”

“I was terrified that Josh would be mad at me or that I would get in trouble at work,” Coveno told The Dodo. “But Josh is a pro. We’ve worked together for 10 years and he made her part of the forecast.”
Clearly, Judge knows what he’s doing. But if we’re being honest, we tend to agree with one of Judge’s Twitter followers, who makes a good point: Why aren’t there more dogs in news and weather segments?
