There are a lot of strange things that happen on ESPN’s College GameDay program.

It’s also apparently becoming quite the hot spot for pooches as last week we saw a handful of bulldogs on set. Now it’s an Irish Terrier (or is at least pretending to be) who stopped by the production, but he wasn’t happy with everybody who was there.

The Notre Dame loving dog, dressed in his full Irishman gear wasn’t taking too kindly to a Michigan cheerleader who was standing next to him grinding her pom-pom’s together. Tiring of it, the little guy (or gal, maybe) decided he’d take a bite out of the situation, tugging on the fibrous material before the cheerleader (clearly shocked) got her pom pom back.

To credit the cheerleader, she never broke stride, though her smile quickly stopped momentarily. Tsk tsk.

I also enjoyed the cheerleader next to her, who can see what’s going on out of the corner of her eye. But rather than help out, she just keeps shaking away. More camera time for her if her teammate is eaten by a ravenous pup, I guess.
