A couple of months before my old GSD passed she watched a whole movie with me. Never watched TV before, we watched Beverly Hills Chiquaqua's, she watched the dogs with interest and tryed to take a treat offered to one of the dogs on TV. Strangest thing, nice memory of my ol gal.
They can recognize the shapes. A human looks like no other animal with our funny bipedal movement and smooshed faces. Blitz will only react if there's a four legged animal on the screen, birds not so much, people not at all. If I'm watching a nature documentary I have to put him away.
Jack watches TV too! It isn't just dogs though. If we put it on those Planet Earth shows, he will watch those animals too. Especially if they are making weird noises. We took this picture Sunday, he just HAD to watch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet.
