Irish president's dog tries to interrupt interview

Irish President Michael D. Higgins had a hard time staying focused during an interview thanks to his attention-seeking dog.

Misneach the 7-month old Bernese Mountain Dog pawed and whined at his owner while Higgins was speaking with a state broadcaster on Sunday (May 2).

Misneach, meaning courage in Irish, is one of two dogs the president owns.

Higgins was speaking on the death of Irish actor Tom Hickey during the interview.
