    Bizkit is watching a programme on Animal Planet called Too Cute which follows litters of puppies from birth. He was relaxing and watching it and then it showed the Labrador puppies playing in slow motion and he sat straight up and stared at it very intently. He's so funny.

    Pippi and Shannow never watch TV but Bizkit loves Animal Planet. :lol:

    What's your dogs favourite TV show?

    Yes quite often. I'm not sure she has a favourite show but she just watched most of Sherlock Holmes. She likes some of the animal ones too. I think she watches it far too much. :lol:

    He appears to at times, it's more if the TV makes a noise he's attracted to then he will sit for a while and watch intently. I would love to be able to see what they see on TV through their eyes though, I am sure it is so different to what we see.

    Never known a dog for watchng TV like Nanuq, not only does she actually sit there and watch certain ones, most of dog orientation. She knows all the ads with dogs in and wherever she is hears the signature tune comes in sits and watches iit then goes off again Favourites included the Dulux Ads, the Bank one with the piggy banks and the china sheepdog figure that runs about??
    Dont ask:scared: and various others.:D

    She doesn't usually watch it, but she will bark at dogs barking on tv and also things like people knocking on doors :rolleyes:

    The only programme she's ever actually watched was some sheep dog trials - she was transfixed!!! :lol:

    Tummel watches anything, last night he was watching Shrek with me!!!

    He's a very clever lad, he gets really upset when he hears a baby cry on the telly but seems to know that the dogs on it aren't real and never gets interested in them!!!

    My dad was amazed when he first heard Kenzie barking at dogs on the TV. He said his old Goldie never did, so he assumed that it was something to do with the processing of sound for TV that made them not sound like real dogs. But again, Kenzie's not the brightest crayon... :lol:

    yes he watches everything!!!

    but the best thing he did was watching tennis, when roger federer was serving he took his wimbledon tennis ball over to him on the tv and dropped it, as if to say here it is.

    i think he really likes him because whenever he was talking on tv he runs over to listen!!!!!

    good job we didnt name him rafa nadal!

    Did anyone see 'The Woman With 700 Cats'?
    That was...interesting. :rolleyes:

    When our Bulldog was alive he lunged at a lion on the tv and pushed it off the unit, thank goodness there's a wall behind it!

    Remy will turn his head and whine at any animal noise on TV...
    Oscar is great fun to watch if one man and his dog are on.. You can jsut see him looking for the sheep he will even run off to the window and peer outside when he hears the whistle..

    Ive only seen Benny react once... There was film of a hunt and as the huntmaster blew the horn he lept up onto the back of the chair and went into full baying mode...

    Hes never repeated the performence..

    Since getting a big TV Dylan love watching TV, he does get quite worried if there is a fight or raised voices.

    He loves wildlife programmes though and pretty much does was Maddie ^^ does. He was intrigued by country file too, but had spent all afternoon with my friends old thyme bull dog playing chase and he was falling asleep sitting up bless him, still such a baby.

    Sherlock likes animal programmes too - his favourite so far was One Man and His Dog, which he was glued to for the whole thing.

    He also enjoyed Bolt, even though it was animated!

    So, he enjoys watching some TV, and if he's not watching it he will look up at it if he hears a dog bark or other animal noises, but he doesn't ever bark himself or go up to the screen, so he obviously realises it's not real!
