I thought I was so smart.
I thought I had a perfect doggie Monday Mischief blog post.
Our dogs do sometimes watch TV, especially Rosie, so I thought I'd catch some cute photos of them watching the new DOGTV channel.
According to their website, DOGTV is the first television network for dogs.
"DOGTV's 24/7 programing helps stimulate, entertain, relax and habituate dogs with shows that expose them to various movements, sounds, objects, experiences and behavior patterns, all from a dog's point of view."
The folks at DOGTV suggest that you sit down and watch with your dogs, so that's exactly what I did.
I found the programing relaxing and rather soothing. The dog daddy loves it.
The dogs were not impressed. Not a one showed an interest. At all. In fact, they left the room!
Another session - another try. Ditto. Zero interest.
The dog daddy thinks it's because we live in the country with lots of stimulation and their huge backyard is a dog park of their very own. Perhaps it's because there are three of them and they amuse each other when we're not interacting with them.
Maybe they're like their humans and just not that much into TV. I dunno.
However, yesterday when I gave DOGTV a third try, I suddenly realized that I did have a taker!
Skeeter was outside, sitting on the deck sideboard and watching intently. She only turned away when the segment with monkeys came on. I mean: got up and turned her back on the monkeys. When the next segment came on - birds - she turned around and became mesmerized once again.
