Down boy!

Being the President of any country has got to be tough.

Whether you’re meeting foreign dignitaries or signing legislation into law, the job undoubtedly comes with a huge amount of pressure.

But President Michael D Higgins has once again proven he’s the man for the job after resisting an onslaught of distraction from his Bernese Mountain puppy, Misneach.

While giving a TV interview to RTÉ, Misneach decided that he wasn’t happy with all the attention being diverted away from him.

Huge credit to the President though, he handled it like a champ.
