In a video uploaded to the Irish President's official TikTok account, you can see the dog named Misneach playfully paw at President Higgins as he speaks to RTÉ.

Not satisfied with the lack of attention he was getting, the puppy even took to gnawing at the President's clothes and fingers.

All the while, President Higgins continued the interview, undistracted by Misneach's desperate ploys, which is some feat.

While Misneach did not make an appearance in the broadcasted interview, the behind-the-scenes TikTok clip has since been viewed over 150,000 times, with many taking to Twitter to say some variation of "Who's a good doggy."
