The dog is actually President Higgins and the man was just translating for him
The acorn in the back shows just how small President Higgins really is.
That’s a tiny puppy!
I love how he doesn't move his hand away so the dog can keep playing with him
He 100% does not give two shits about what he was saying and preferred playing with his dog. Check 00:42, the pup about stopped, but was being egged on to keep going lol!
"Dude! You see that acorn? Let's go find the squirrel that put it there!"
This is one time the squirrel will be chasing the dog
That is a man with treats in his pocket if ever I have seen one
Not treats but a very special ring.
Political opposition: pet the damn dog you monster
The president here has no real political opposition because he doesn't have a political party.
I like to think that Michael D got re-elected by such a landslide (aside from the poor quality of the other candidates) is that so many people were worried that the Dogs had gotten used to having so much attention and visitors to pet and play with them, that if he didn't get re-elected they'd get lonely and sad.
Considering the guy looks old and really nice makes it hard to hate him unless he does something really bad
I'm ashamed to admit this, but at first glance I thought he was holding some kind of wizard cane
Oh yes, as an Irishman I can confirm our president is a Wizard. That acorn in the background is life-size and he's just shrank himself down for this interview.
I got to wave at the man on his birthday the other week. What a legend
But did you get to pet his dog?
I know literally nothing about this guy and apologize if this is ill informed, but this is a great testament to his character lol
You're not wrong he is awesome
You're gonna have to pay your Berner taxes and share pics/gifs/vids of her
Piss off with the guitar, let us hear the man
couldn’t agree more
Awwhhh, is President Higgins a good president? I hope so because every meme I see of him is wholesome af
He is as wholesome as he looks
There's a fuck ton of videos of this doggo but I ain't complaining
... I want more
**M O R E**
This is actually the brand new dog (Misneach), so we have plenty of time to get more videos of this ball of pure delight :D
I have never in all my life seen a man who looked so much like a Baggins.
“Higgins” does sound like a name a Baggins would come up with to hide their identity, so...
For a second I thought the dog was about to pants the president
Oh Misneach , you adorable little pup
This should be a test for all heads of state. This guy passes.
I am very very happy to call him my president
"I'm not gonna be ignored"
"Dad. Psssst, Dad..... DAD! Hey, DAAAAAD! ......hey, um, Dad? Let's go play! Ugh, Daaaaaaad, this is boooooring...... Come ON, Dad.... DAAAAD!"
'This field is so nice Dad! We could run around and play. All or roll in the grass. Dad. Daaaad! I come one and play!"
A pair of velcro sneakers to go with his suit! This man is the Irish Bernie Sanders.
They're very similar in their socialist beliefs too!
*"Dad. Dad. Dad. Dad. Dad."*
"I'm tired of government's being run by elites!"
*Ireland enters the chat*
I care not for your governmental affairs, I demand pets.
This dog: "how can you ignore me like this?!"
Owner: President of a Country
Can someone tell this uneducated American who President Higgins is and how can I get him to be the next POTUS?
President of the Republic of Ireland, no chance anyone else can have him!
That man looks exactly like the president of Ireland should to me, someone who knows nothing of Irish politics. Do we like him?
We do. We do indeed. You'd be hard pressed to find an Irish person to say a bad word about him. A genuinely nice man.
No speeches, only skritches! Also r/PetTheDamnDog
Am I the only one irritated by the music playing???
President Higgins looks like he belongs in a Hobbit movie.
Could've done without the music. Would've loved to hear what he was saying
Run country later, gimi pats
Isn't that the Mayor of The Shire?
Puppy said can’t spell media without “me”
This guy is my favorite president of any country.
Ah MiggleDHiggins you absolute hero.
if more countries where ran by tiny old men who loved puppies and where not afraid to look silly nationally maybe the world would be better. I don't know, I think it's a sign of a good person if they don't care what they look like on tv. I have heard the Irish like their president, which is weird and should not be weird.
f he had a cat, it'd be on his shoulders trying to give him headbonks
Things that make you go AWW! Like puppies, bunnies, babies, and so on...
A place for really cute pictures and videos!
