TV Watching at Chez Herd

Sometimes, the Hu-dad just wants to stretch out on the couch and do a little TV watching. And, of course, we all try to help.

great pillow
You would be a great pillow, Hu-dad, if you didn’t move so much.
blocking screen
Hu-Dad: “Someone is blocking the screen?”
Typhoon: “Where are they?”
Animal Planet
If I had the remote control, we would be watching Animal Planet.
dog on TV
Oh, cool, a dog on the TV – now that will get my attention.

    It is interesting what different dogs react to on tv. I’ve seen a few videos of some emotional reactions to The Lion King. I imaging you’re still Frankie’s pillow on occasion.

    Isn’t it amazing how some dogs actually look(or at least listen to) the TV? Over the years ours have barked when they hear a doorbell ring or a dog bark. Typhoon is funny blocking the screen!

    Mom sez: Blocking the TV used to be Ayla’s trick, as in standing right in front of it to watch any animals that might be on the screen. Ice, he can’t be bothered.

    Our pups are very considerate when I watch television. When Aaron comes over, they both fight over who gets to sit on him. Usually it is a tie…
