Sunny LOVES to watch TV, and is not shy about being vocal if there are other critters in his TV room, even if they are on a screen. He is a trip! He routinely settles in next to me and watches TV -- all kinds of TV. But, I have to be careful since so many advertisers use animals in their commercials. Here are a couple.....the large cat on the screen was for an Iams commercial I think.
Jake would watch TV, but Sunny has this "love/hate" thing going with it. Heaven forbid I left Animal Planet on -- our Wild Country Safari!!!!
Every Day is a Sunny Day

Beau has never really shown any interest in the TV picture, but guess what happens if there is a doorbell or knock on the soundtrack?
I live in a very old vintage condo and the doorbell must have been installed in 1929, too! Anyway, it is the most obnoxious, loud, nasty sounding thing that could wake the dead! Sunny ERUPTS when someone rings it --- so I actually had a toggle switch put on it so I could turn it OFF! OF course, then people need to call me, etc. Anyway, I am having a holiday party in a few weeks with a couple dozen people.....I am trying to figure out some way to not have that darn bell!!! He will get used to it --- at least with TV he more or less "rushes" the TV with one growl or yip. He even reacts with Animated Animals!!! Go figure!

Remington has learned the word McDonalds. If a comercial comes on for them, I better get it muted quick, if not he is off to the front door and wants to go. He loves the chicken nuggets.... Bleh! We watch cartoons at night, and he will watch and occasionally wag his tail from something on tv. But becomes a wild man for McDOnalds commercials. lol

Jewel only watches animal shows, but not things like fish. Birds and cats make her upset. She likes gorillas, dogs and zoo shows. She really likes "It's Me or The Dog." Very freaky to see your dog intensely watching a dog training show, I assume (hope) it's because they use a lot of words she knows from her own training. Oh and she loves babies, they get her a little worked up because she had a litter of puppies before I adopted her. If the babies are making happy sounds it's okay but if they're crying it upsets her.

Lila loved to watch tv. She is the only one I have ever proven that she was actually watching it. We could have it on mute and change channel to animal planet and the minute she saw a dog she would growl and bark. It was adorable but annoying as we could never watch animal planet when Lila was awake.
The only time Molly reacts to TV is when she hears a dog or cat on it. Then she is glued to it til the image is gone! When a doorbell rings or a doorknock is heard she will bark or growl very softly and look at the door then back at the TV....it seems to confuse her!

Journey totally loves TV. I think that she thinks it is a window. If there is any kind of animal or toy that looks like an animal, you hear a low rumble then she charges the length of the room and slams her nose against the screen. The funny thing is she is awesome with dogs who come to visit and the dogs at the shows. She just does not like critters in that window. My first Whippet did this too, but nobody else even takes notice.
