    Don't tell my other half, but when he's not home I sometimes let Thor inside for a little play!

    The other week Thor came in the lounge with me and saw the tv for the first time... he was absolutuley fascinated by all the ads (he was doing the sideways head thing) and then he absolutely freaked out when the Mentalist came back on and there was a close up shot of Simon Baker. Thor ran out the room and kept poking his head through the door to see if he was gone!

    Sorry to thread mine, but last night Ruskee watched at least 40 minutes of a wolf documentary, it was amazing. I kept telling her that is your relation, she would look at me, then look back at the screen hehe. Extraordinary.

    Kimba doesn't watch it at all, she never looks at it other than a glance. The ONLY noise that I can get her attention is to 'cats meowing' on youtube, but she looks for them inside not on the tv/comp.

    Roxy has only watched a coffee bean dancing on the tv for some strange reason.Dexter takes more notice of the noises but can't really be bothered to investigate.

    It is not a bad thing though as I used to have a rottie called Ralph and he had to be banned from the room if animals came on the tv as he would go mad and then sit in front and no one could watch it with that big lump there!

    He also knew it was walk time when the Eastenders music came on(we were in England at the time)and snack time when another soap music came on!I remember to be careful on Sunday when it was on at a different time and had to scramble for the remote to turn the sound down when it was not walk time.I miss my beautiful boy.

    I can actually add more to this now. We have since purchased a larger tv for the living room and Monte now watches it more than ever before. In fact, it is beginning to become a bother as he now barks at people and animals. I figure as it is much large, he can see it better now.

    Last night we were watching an episode of Hale and Pace (comedy sketches) and Hale was standing in front of a gate with two barking GSD's behind it, prentending to be a newsreporter. He was saying ' I am doing this story from here to annoy you with those barking dogs, i could do it from over there, but no, I wanted the barking dogs and right now your dog is sitting there barking its head off at these dogs, waking your neighbours up etc etc' Now as he was saying it, Gigha HAD run up to the TV and WAS barking at it. My husband who was protecting his 46inch flat screen, didnt hear the clip and couldnt understand why I was laughing so hard.

    Ruby will perk up if she hears another dog or cat on television But generally after 1 minute on the lounge she is snoring her head off. She reminds me of Grandpa off the Simpsons. You could be full playing with her one minute then the next she is out like a light!

    neither of mine watch tv

    the odd glance if they hear a dog, or see some exciting movemet but otherwise they are too busy sleeping, or attacking the crap out of each other
