Your dog's favorite commercial/show?

Enzo doesn't usually care much about what is on TV, but there are a few exceptions. His favorite thing ever is the Empire Carpet jingle from their commercial. The rest of the commercial, he could care less about...but when he hears them singing their phone number, he will come running from wherever he is in the house to watch. How about your pup? Any favorites?

Surprisingly, our Golden is pretty ambivalent towards the television, but our Newf mix (the tiger looking thing in my sig) will respond to pretty much any animal noise on tv. She's barked back at dogs on tv, but will wake up and sniff the tv for less than that- pretty much any other Animal Planet sounds.

Our Golden, Emmit, responded to doorbell noises only at one apartment out of the three he's lived in. He's 3, so that works out to a move once a year, but his most "reactive" year was his first year after our cross-country move, so I think that was more of an adjustment reaction than a tv one!

Enzo doesn't even care about animal sounds! He mostly just likes that commercial and I've caught him watching Men In Black a couple times. lol

My DH watches The Voice. Anytime someone sings Bentley stops what he's doing and sits in front of the TV to stare. When they start talking he walks away until the next song.

Mosby is really obsessed with watching lions. Any other animal comes on TV, and he really doesn't care, but lions - man, he gets up there and moves his head around following their every move. He also likes watching tennis with my husband, but not nearly as intently as he watches the lions on Nat Geo, lol.

This question brings back bittersweet memories of Cheyenne who we lost in February. She loved TV animals. Didn't matter what kind she knew they were animals and would stand on her hind legs and bark at them, popping the TV with her nose. She was always spot on in her hits with that nose. She never popped a tree or car, always a dog, horse, cat or yes, even cartoon animals. She would come running if she heard commercials she knew contained animals. It was an annoying habbit we first laughed at then hated. God I miss her.

He is beautiful by the way. Yukon mostly goes for any show that has a lot of movement or animal noises. Something that catches his eye!

Comet votes for any show where there are dogs catching frisbees. During the freestyle frisbee show on Animal Planet a couple of years ago, he actually hit the TV trying to catch a frisbee on it.
