    Monte is an avid TV watcher and watches bits and pieces most evenings, depending on what is on. I tend to watch a lot of animal type shows and he loves them.

    One rescue we had in, Cookie, also watched. I recall watching her one day being particularly concerned when she heard little pups making mewing sounds. She had previously been bred from and I guess it was her mothering insitinct coming to the fore. She wanted to help the babies on tv.

    They don't watch TV but I have to wipe nose slobber off the screen whenever someone whistles on TV. There was an ad a while ago that used to make me scramble for the volume control because I was scared Gemma was going to push the TV over (large flat-screen).

    There were several period piece shows that had the old fashioned bell phone ring in them which sounds exactly the same as my door bell, and that would set Frosty off every time. Took a while for her to figure out the difference though if she pays attention to me it's obvious.

    Mine go off when they hear stuff on the telly, like dogs barking or cats meowing, and they look confused when they hear the lion roar on the MGM trailer!

    I had a foster last year that I'd catch watching the telly, he'd sit in front of it and his head would nod from side to side, each time his ears would twitch, it was so funny to watch him that I'd end up missing whatever was on the telly!

    Ziggy doesn't watch TV, but one of my cats like to try to catch the mouse pointer on the computer screen, so cute

    i'm surprised more ppl here did not reply to this one.. little dog loves watching tv it seems.. he's particularly fond of the Hairy Bikers, and will wake up and move in front of the tv when they come on. he also likes Mythbusters and Top Gear. doesn't always watch tv, but will always watch those shows. there is a particular type of person he will always bark at, and gets all growly too, an older man with short grey hair and a short grey beard. i can only imagine he has had a bad experience with someone like that in his past.. perhaps..

    i read on some webpage somewhere that dogs don't really see what is on tv, but react to noises or bright colours. i think that's rubbish.

    Ollie watches when there's a dog on the TV (the animal cop show is his fav) and Miley barks at the TV when goes funny like when there's a scratch in the disk and we are watching a DVD.

    Most of our dogs watch T.V and all of them watch it when dog whisperer is on. When we leave the house and the 7 of them are left locked in our kitchen/family area we leave the animal channel on and it seems to keep them amused......most of the time.
    Had one issue when we had a rear projection T.V. our JRT was trying to get to the lady on the screen and kept going behind the T.V. to look for her. She ended up knocking the T.V over and breaking it.....oh well the joys of owning a dog.
