A Bulldog randomly crashed a TSN hockey pregame show earlier this week, which is pretty doggone pawesome.

As our pal Ovie the Bulldog knows, Bulldogs are the some of the best hockey doggos. (Yes, BarkSir WinstonHolland and everyone else, we know that all y’all are also the best hockey dogs, stop barking, please.) So it’s not really a surprise that a very good girl crashed the set of a TSN hockey pregame show on Thursday.

Dog O’Day learned of this through the Washington Capitals-centered hockey site Russian Machine Never Breaks.

A Bulldog named Tank wandered onto the set on Thursday, January 16, as host Tessa Bonhomme and analyst Pierre LeBrun were discussing that day’s matchup between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Montreal Canadiens.

“That’s my pup Tank,” Bonhomme later explained on Twitter. “She wanted her 15 seconds of fame.”

I mean, who can really blame her, though, right? Especially if Mom is always in front of the cameras, Tank’s gotta show that she knows about hockey, too.

From that picture, though, Tank doesn’t look all that repentant, though. And she does look very cute and adorable.

As hockey fans and dog lovers, the staff here at Dog O’Day vote that overall we give her a rating of 13 out of 10, using the WeRateDogs scale of measurement, of course.

As for the actual game itself that Bonhomme and LeBrun were discussing during the TSN hockey pregame show, Gritty’s Flyers fell to Flambo’s Canadiens by a 4-1 score, which brings Montreal to 49 points and a record of 21-21-7 at the halfway mark of the 2019-20 NHL season, while Philadelphia sits just outside the second wild card position with 56 points and a 25-17-6 record.
