Default Does your dog watch TV?

Zoe will stand right in front of it if there are dogs, or any other animals on the TV. Sometimes we turn on "America's Funniest Animals" just to watch her stand on the bed just inches from the screen. I've got to get a picture of it!

I have 3 dogs, but only 1 will really watch tv. Funny enough the times I notice when he's really into the tv is when the Simpsons are on...lol...the normal stuff with other animals on tv, he will walk to each side to try and figure out where the animals are.

Dakota spends all day watching TV, I kid you not. Dad has a big screen and Dakota sits in front of it and moves his head to follow the subjects. If a football/baseball/hockey/basketball game isn't going well and dad yells at the TV, Dakota barks at it.

He likes sports, dog shows/agility and action movies. He hates talk shows (leaves the room if Bill O'Reilly comes on the TV... I guess he did pick up something from me.) and is bored if we get 5 minutes into a movie and nobody has been in a fight yet. He has an obsession with guns and hitting.

Dash and Eve glance at it periodically if there's an animal on the screen.

Certain shows where there are dogs barking will get Orson's attention.......but as far as actually watching, NO neither do.

But then again our TV isn't on all that much, the kids watch in the family room but the dogs don't spend much time in there.

Herschel doesn't watch my plasma, but at home he stares at my parents LCD. No idea what the difference is to him...

Nala watches if there are animals on and they are making a lot of noise.

Default Watching TV...

Bella will watch TV if there is something interesting with animals on. In the pic she is watching a dog agility show IIRC.

For some reason, she likes to watch bad horror movies with Mike. I don't know why.
