Dogs truly are a man's best friend and by the looks of it, one man's favourite colleague. 

TikTok user Diane Koko captured the adorable moment a weather report on Global News Toronto was crashed by a dog wandering on screen and stealing the spotlight— completely unphased by the fact his owner was broadcasting live.

In the video, which has over 314,000 likes on TikTok, Andrew Farnell, the chief meteorologist for the network was mid-report when his dog Storm walks on screen, attentively following his owner to where he's standing.

Although Farnell presses on with the report at first, he can't help but laugh as he moves off screen to allow viewers to see the forecast. Storm follows, resulting in him looking as though he's standing on top of a body of water when the background changes.

"Amazing dog walks on water," Ms Koko captioned the video, in reference to the pup who looked like he was wading out to sea on the map behind him, due to the green screen background.

Users loved the surprise guest, with thousands of comments on flooding TikTok and Twitter.

"Looks like there's a storm coming in," one user joked.

"I missed the entire forecast because I was looking at the dog," laughed another. 

"I worked at this channel years ago, Storm is so in love with Andrew," one user commented. "He's always nearby standing with adoration." 

The impromptu pop-in isn't a first for the 10-year-old miniature Goldendoodle dog who is apparently a weekly fixture at the station, visiting every Friday.

Storm the weather dog, as he's known on social media, has thousands of followers on his Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts.
