DO DOGS REALLY WATCH TELEVISION?

they did a study and in short, the poodle had to interest in cartoons but love nature shows and freaked when viewing cats. on occasion watched for 45 mins. straight.

I have a Portuguese Water Dog/Dalmation mix... can sit minutes at a time in front of the tv screen, but only after it hears another animal on tv... think it stays there more out of curiosity than anything else. Funny thing is that she barks at dogs on tv when she sees them.

I voted yes, but I must say that my cats rarely take interest when animals are on the screen. But the most interesting reaction they had was seeing each other on home videos. Each cat would fixate on the TV when the other was on, but lost interest when they saw themselves.

Pego, I see what you mean!! No pine cone, so let:s eat doggy instead. Did notice, though, that the squirrel on the photo looked like some type of gangster squirrel... maybe escaped from KGB lab.

The squirrel thing may have been a hoax, but the jackelopes of Wyoming have become a real problem, and there have been several instances where rabid jackelopes have attacked people there!

The weresquirrels of Montana are huge! None have been caught yet, but here is a rendition of what they look like:

I am, however, very skeptical of this picture of Bigfoot:

I have seen a Sasquatch, and they look NOTHING like this - I suspect someone is trying to pull our leg. I hate that.
