Faith only seems to notice the TV when it has interesting animal sounds or the Dyson commerical that sounds like a squeek toy. or... any show that has a doorbell sound. it drives us crazy that we have to go open our front door to prove to her that no one is there.

Oh yes! Ozzy loves to watch TV. He's especially interested in animal shows but also likes some fast moving sports. Every now & then he also talks back to those talking to him.

He also loves it when I'm watching videos on the computer & sits with his head in my lap just to watch.

When the squirrel scene came on in the Johnny Depp version of Charle and the Chocolate Factory Jaime went nuts - Honey Wolves love to chase squirrels (called gophers) more than anything else in the whole world.

When I watch CNBC and the stock ticker is running along Lucy chases it and tries to catch it coming out of the side of the TV - pretty funny - Lucy is much more the TV watcher than Jaime though

Carson will watch...especially if there are other animals on the screen.

Funny story: Charlie our last dog (lab mix) was laying on the couch watching tv with me. A commerical, I forget what for, came on and there was a giraffe walking across the screen. He totally freaked out, his hackles rose, and he was growling and barking at the tv....he'd never done that, even to other dogs before. It was pretty funny!! :D

This must be a golden thing. My two labs never did it but Daisy does. At first I thought it was cute but to be honest it's kind of annoying now. Between the pacing back and forth and whining it can get annoying. It's especially bad on my big screen because it's lower to the ground and she can get right up to it. Just what I wanted a $3000 70" tv with slobber and nose prints on it, lol. Oh well you take the good with the bad I guess.

We bought a flat screen tv this week and last night watched an HD documentary on bears. Rusty has watched tv for about 30 second intervals but he watched a solid 45 minutes last night. He kept running up to the tv and when the bear would walk off screen he'd poke his head around the side of the tv looking for them. So funny!
