I mean seriously watch it - recognise other dogs or fun animals like cats or get mesmerised by the Telly.
I noticed Frosty really STARING at the telly one time - and there was some sort of fighting and yelling with flashes, bangs and explosions and she looked quite worried - her face was all creased up around her forehead and she looked like she was about to run and hide.
I switched over to golf or cricket or something more benign.
She's also tried to get the kittens on the telly - and is quite facinated by african savannah documentaries with giraffes, elephants and more cats etc.
Have you had to change the channel because the dog seems upset by it?
And like several other dogs I've known - especially the cattle dogs, if she competes with the telly for attention and often puts herself between me and it. When she's playing tug or when she has a snooze on the floor she goes between me and the telly.
