You can google yourself silly with "dogs watch TV" as the search words, and everybody tells you that dogs cannot make out either sounds or images on television. Iris proved this theory wrong the first week I had her; I was watching Dog Whisperer, and she attacked my television. Yes, she did. It scared me, and I reprimanded her.
Tonight I put together several clips of her watching Cesar; you will see her watching closely, but she will no longer attack, because she knows she isn't supposed to do that. Instead, she takes out her aggression on her toys. I'm afraid I've given her some mental issues.
I've noticed that not only does she recognize dogs on TV, she now recognizes Cesar as well. When he does that "SHHH...!" thing, she ducks.
Of course you think I'm hallucinating. But my oldest grandson was here this evening, and he's my witness. Ask him.
With no further ado, I give you the video of Iris watching The Dog Whisperer.
