Guide dogs have a reputation for being gentle and careful. This is because they’re supposed to assist and protect their owners who are usually visually impaired or physically disabled.
Nevertheless, it’s important to remember that these specially trained dogs are strong, too. Carol Kirkwood, a weather reporter for BBC, learned this in an unceremonious and hilarious manner. She fell facedown after the dog she was featuring on her show tried to walk away.
The ruckus during a live show
During her segment, Carol was talking to hosts Sally Nugent and Dan Walker about guide dogs. She introduced the two other hosts to a guide dog named Flash.
In the video below, you would hear that Carol had nothing but praises for Flash. She said that the pup was well-behaved and absolutely beautiful. The dog, meanwhile, was sniffing around Carol’s cable.
A few moments later, Flash walked away while Carol was still holding on to the leash. Because of that, the reporter got pulled onto the ground. It was so sudden that the two other hosts were laughing about it.
You could hear Dan shouting that Carol was down. He hilariously added that someone must save the weather reporter.
The hosts in the studio kept laughing while Carol tried to get back on track. She affirmed that guide dogs were extremely strong animals.
Obviously, the netizens are amused
Since its broadcast, the clip has become viral on different social media platforms. The video has actually been reposted on YouTube by an account called Guide Dogs, which is actually a group that takes care of Flash. Currently, the said video has more than 270K views.
One wrote that what happened on the show was a cheery moment. Nevertheless, the same commenter said that Carol could just let go of the leash.
As it turned out, Carol didn’t have much luck with pooches. One netizen recalled that he had seen another video on YouTube that showed the reporter’s unfortunate experience with a dog.
