    How cute.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Depends on whether you wanted to listen to the music - or the dog!

    A few years back they did a lot of research on the effect of different music on livestock. Cows gave the highest milk yield while listening to light classical music.

    Our Whippet, Strada enjoys classical music. He was very freaky and timid when he first arrived and we used it to help calm him down. Music is actually used by some animal behaviorists in the USA.

    We had a Border Collie years ago who used to sing along with selected songs. She loved bugles best and we always put the Anzac day march on for her so she could sing along with The Last Post.

    You know Deerhound, I vaguely recall reading something about that experiment with the cows. I know they use it constantly to soothe babies and also pregnant mothers, so who can tell with dogs.

    Your Border Collie would have been a great duo with my deceased Kelsey.

    Gus Likes the blues. Allman Bros Stormy Monday is his favourite as long as it's thru a very small amp :-)

    No music lovers here. But Rosie watches heaps of TV. She even pays attention to the news!

    I have a tv watcher ot two also.

    They say that Pugs are more inclined to watch tv due to their vision, which is not like a normal dogs vision. Their eyes are more centralised and closer together and they do not have very good long distance vision.

    Pretty just prefers to sleep or be out chewing a bone. The only time tv gets her attention is if there is a dog barking on it.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Sumo reacts really strongly to puppies whimpering. We were watching an episode of Cesar Millan with tiny puppies in it. Sumo started running around searching...running to the speakers with head tilted...running around some more. He is just a gorgeous boy
