Canadians who watched Global News Toronto last week to check out the weekend weather report learned that the weather would be just fine and that a mini Goldendoodle is fluffy and adorable.
Meteorologist Anthony Farnell wasn’t alone in front of the green screen to deliver the forecast. His buddy, Storm the weather dog, is right by his side.
Global News shared the now-viral video to YouTube. in the clip, Storm can be seen popping in and out of the screen, pausing from time to time to eat a treat near the weather map.
“Yes, Storm is in the building, getting some treats, walking on thin air,” Farnell says while off screen as his dog steals the spotlight.
Viewers loved it! They even praised the dog for being a “good boy.”
“What a good boy. He doesn’t really interrupt him, just watches his owner and checks out the scene,” one YouTube user wrote.
“What a cutie. And so well mannered! My dog would be whining and huffing and puffing for more treats,” another reacted.
“It is the dog days of August after all,” someone else pointed out.
Internet fame is nothing new for Storm, Farnell told Pawsh Magazine back in 2019.
“I had already brought my new little puppy into work once and believe it or not the Global News viewers helped me find the name Storm thanks to an online poll,” he shared. “That was cute but what happened the following month is what really made him a ‘GLOBAL’ sensation.”
Storm’s first candid appearance on Global News happened in 2012. It was during the evening news.
“I was working on my weather maps and I assumed Storm was under my desk,” Farnell continued. “A couple minutes later I glanced up to the TV monitor in front of me and there was Storm, popping his head up from under the News Desk right beside the anchor during our live broadcast.”
Now, Storm is considered part of the news team, as the caption in his latest viral clip hints with the line, “You can watch Anthony, Storm and the rest of the Global Toronto team weekdays at 5:30 and 6:00 eastern time.”
