Mastiff 1, weatherman 0: Live forecast goes to the dogs

Legendary comedian W.C. Fields once said "never work with children or animals," and that's likely what Mike Sobel, a weatherman in Edmonton, Canada, was thinking after he brought his mastiff Ripple on live television in an effort to raise awareness for the local humane society.

During the live forecast, Ripple saw his chance to be a star, tugging at his leash and taking his owner for a walk, eventually even chewing himself free.

The jury is still out on whether or not Ripple will return to live broadcasting following his ruff debut.
