Lily turns the tv on herself if we leave the remote out where she can get to it! She changes channels too, but i can't say that she has particular kinds of favorite programs. When doorbells ring on the tv that sound sort of like ours Peeves will answer it.

Not from tv, but we can't say the word squirrel in our house anymore. For a while we would spell it, but now even that gets a reaction. We are starting to refer to them as grey rodents.

Both mine occasionally watches tv. Nothing phases Eve and for the most part is uninterested, but Fergie is an avid tv watcher. She will look sooooo interested on what's going too. She will carefully watch it for minutes at a time. For a while she would react to the doorbell and barking.. Well at least now the barking tv gets less of a reaction. It's the funniest thing tho if she sees another dog or wolf even, she will growl at the tv. She catches them every time too lol. I don't care what else is on tv there is no reaction.. Then *dog* and growl lol

Chagall isn't much of a TV watcher, but he "answers" TV doorbells and responds to that beep-beep-beep sound of a truck backing up. There's a commercial with that sound which airs frequently, it always launches him racing around the house looking for the source. He will sit on my lap and watch poodle grooming DVD's, but just for the pets I think. (Though he may be amused to see another poodle's hair being fussed over.) I think Sunny's got it made, he basically has a "man cave" with a nice TV of his own and a courtesy bone bar.

With my late dog, we couldn't say "go for a walk" without having to endure dashed hopes if there was no walk forthcoming. To be silly, since phonetically it sounds like "gopher wok" I would say in a really excited voice before we went out "Small furry mammal Chinese cooking utensil!" (yes, I am sure that utensil is not the right word, but it was what stuck)

Be glad you aren't around for my puns.

Pearl has mostly experienced tv on my iPad, and will give great head tilts for dog sounds. She will also look behind it! Smart girl. Since many of the videos I have been watching since getting her have been dog training, there have been lots of background dogs barking. She does not approve.

Abby is very involved in my husband's video games. She won't even sit or lay down, she just stands and stares. She must feel his tension/excitement while playing. As for the random shows, some things might catch her attention but she isn't too interested.

Dexter doesnt pay allot of attention to the TV unless there is barking of coarse. However he loves our TV time. He hops up on the sofa beside hubby and glances over at me. I swear he does it to lay beside hubby before I can sit there. He is so big there is no room for me.
