Video of Mike Sobel and Ripple the Dog`s Weather Forecast Goes Viral
"Earlier this week, the Edmonton Humane Society stopped by the station with Ripple, a one-year-old Shepherd-Mastiff cross. The boisterous young pup was up for adoption and, as he does every week, Mike brought him up to the weather board to do the forecast together.
But Ripple didn`t seem to care that there was work to be done. He took over the weather forecast, making it play time with Mike."
Alberta weather specialist Mike Sobel does the forecast with a different pooch every Wednesday to promote pet adoptions, but he got more than he bargained for when he tried to do the forecast with Ripple.
The playful puppy showed Sobel who was the top dog, the pooch`s antics stole the show, and he became an instant Internet sensation. Cats may rule the Internet, but every dog has his day, and Ripple is enjoying his moment in the spotlight.
The TV station has been flooded with requests to adopt Ripple; there are plenty of playful puppies waiting for a forever home at your local animal shelter.
