Cynder couldn't care less about what is going on in regards to the television. Abrams, however, is a different story. If I'm watching something, he will often stop what he's doing (typically chewing on a bone) and stare at the TV in fascination. I'm not really sure what exactly grabs his attention, but when it does, he is mesmerized. He'll also respond to sound and go up to the speakers with his head cocked, trying to figure out what it is. Again, I can't really figure out what triggers him, but it is freaking cute when he does so. He will watch dogs with unwavering attention and will also respond to their vocalizations. And, funnily enough, he reacts if I pause the TV when it is zoomed in on a person or their face. He'll be walking by without a care in the world, then look up and see the person and start barking like, "Whoa! How did you get here? Mom! Something is wrong!" This evening I had paused it while watching Once Upon a Time and it was frozen on a profile shot of Mr. Gold. I stepped into the bathroom and no sooner had I put my pajamas on Abrams was barking at the TV, horribly insulted that Mr. Gold was standing in his livingroom. Once I played the episode again he lost all interest in the people. Granted, we have a big TV and it is on a stand that puts it about eye level with Abrams...but I just find his reactions amusing! How does your dog react?
