‘It’s a dog’s life in Melbourne’: Hilarious moment a reporter’s pet pooch interrupts the Today show by LEAPING into the shot during a live broadcast

  • Adorable pooch lapped up his moment in the spotlight by jumping on his owner 

A veteran television reporter has been upstaged by his adorable dog during a live broadcast.

The hilarious moment happened while Channel Nine sports reporter Tony Jones was discussing AFL grand final outside Melbourne’s MCG on the Today Show on Friday morning.

As the segment was wrapping up, hosts Allison Langdon and Karl Stefanovic inquired about the yapping they could hear in the background. 

The camera zooms in on Jones’ beloved cavoodle and frequent work companion Archie, sitting patiently metres away.

‘I think you might have been talking about this little fella here, who comes with me on most jobs. We are back on the Today Show Archie, do you remember?,’ Jones says.

A delighted Archie laps up the special attention and enjoys his moment in the limelight as he leaps all over his owner.

‘Do you remember last year? Do you remember last year? We had so much fun. We are back now. I know, it’s exciting, isn’t it. Now, remember what I told you in the car, it’s Karl and Ally. Do you remember? Yeah, I know, it’s exciting,’ Jones tells his dog.

Archie’s antics left Langdon and Stefanovic in stitches in the studio.

‘You’re a loose unit,’ Stafanoic told Jones, before referring to the face wear mandatory for Victorians due to COVID-19.

‘Shouldn’t that dog have a mask on?’ he quipped:

Jones replied: ‘This is the irony. We are not only picking up their poo but they are free to go wherever they want. It’s a dog’s life in Melbourne at the moment.’

Later in the program, Archie was asked by his owner whether the Geelong Cats or Richmond Tigers will win Saturday night’s AFL grand final at the Gabba in Brisbane.

‘The Tigers. Well, there you go. I mean, he’s a very, very good judge. He actually does all my homework for me,’ Jones said.

It’s not Archie’s first appearance of the Today Show.

He often appeared on the show when Jones was a presenter on the breakfast program before he abruptly quit the show late last year.

‘The good news is, Archie has a new two-year contract. I got the a**e. It’s all going very, very well,’ Jones said on his last day on the show last November.
