I just finished dog-sitting with someone new. If the television was on, he spent a lot of time leaping up and down in front of it.

This used up some of his abundant energy, but it was definitely distracting, and made me think twice about the movies I tried to watch.

The first night we watched a jungle picture; you can imagine. This was my introduction to his tv habits. He was panting by the middle, and the extravagant height of his leaps had become much less extravagant by the end credits. That movie probably gave him the exercise of a three-mile walk. The other film that sent him into a tizzy was about race car drivers.

But even relatively calm tv dramas could catch his ear and eye, and get him leaping toward a hand gesture or barking at an actress tossing her hair.

Some other dogs I know get all worked up every time there's a doorbell or a knocking sound on the television, but they are usually being wakened from a couch snuggle by those noises. A napping dog makes for a much more relaxing viewing experience.
