    Default Afraid of TV?

    Does anyone else have a Bullie who is afraid of the tv?

    Bacon hadn't really noticed the tv til last weekend when he was sitting on the couch with us while we were watching Alice in Wonderland. He was sitting there looking @ the tv, and you could see him watching what was going on, and then out of nowhere a huge animal jumps onto the screen and at that moment Bacon Jumped about 6 ft in the air! It was hilarious!
    Ever since we have noticed him constantly watching the tv when its on... but the weird thing is he constantly growling @ it, and hiding like hes scared, it doesnt matter what is on. Anyone else experience this?
    <3 Bacon and Danny

    We've never had that reaction except for with scarey noises or dogs barking. For the safety of my tv i cant wtach movies with cats or cats meowing because Georgia has tried to eat the tv before lol.

    oh my.. nope, he WATCHES it!!

    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    Gertie and Ida haven't really paid very much attention to the TV. When they do notice it, they just sit and watch. I don't think they have any opinion one way or another.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Vegas will watch TV, when Ceaser Milan the dog whisperer is on he just sits and cocks his head one way than the other when the dogs bark, but he has never been scared, barked or growled at the TV.

    This is Vegas sitting on the couch watching The Dog Whisperer

    When Vegas was a baby and we first started leaving him home alone for the day, I would put Baby Einstein on continuous play for him. I was previewing a copy of one of the episodes and it stopped Vegas in his tracks...he sat down and he followed the puppet back and forth across the screen. I was amazed. When the puppet disappeared from the screen, he would cock his head and keep his eyes on the area of the tv it disappeared from. When it would reappear on the other side...it would confuse him..but he would pick up on following the puppet. From there on, I put his kennel in front of the TV with baby Einstein on continuous play...to babysit. That was probably the first time I treated him like a child. We'd had him for 2 weeks. It hasn't stopped since.

    Vegas is a genius

    Samson watches TV sometimes but it never scares him. Are you talikng about the new Alice in wonderland? I can see that being scary at times for pups.

    We have two miniature schnauzers and one of them, Brandi, is ecstatic every time she sees or hears a dog on the tv. She'll bark and run up to the tv then come to each one of us whining as if to tell us that there's a dog on the screen!

    Maggie used to ignore the tv, but recently we've discovered that if we pause it she finds it VERY annoying - and she lets us know about it. She will bark at the tv and us until we start it playing again!

    UPDATE .... as I posted the above reply the kids are in the other room playing Wii. They have to throw a frisbee for a dog, and Brandi the (slightly insane) miniature schnauzer is running around to tell us all there's a dog on the screen!
