    My pup knew more about economics, than most people I have met lately.

    Folks can be so proud of their ignorance.

    Ours seem to enjoy watching Animal Planet, and will also bark back at any dog who barks on TV

    We had a mostly Rottweiler, Kia, a couple of years ago (she's passed away now) who would watch entire episodes of Flipper with me on a tablet. Skippy the kangaroo she enjoyed too. She was really watching and would react 'correctly' as things happened. She also loved Jimi Hendrix. I tried other bands but she only showed interest in Jimi.
    I experimented with different things. We watched a YouTube where a dolphin rescues a small dog that fell off a boat by having the dog stand on its back and I watched as Kia's jaw dropped and her eyes widened. She couldn't believe it.
    We showed her a clip where a rescued wolf was with its keeper...a young woman...and Kia nearly went thru the screen. A wolf beside a human was very very wrong , apparently.
    But Godzilla had no effect. CGI and animation didn't seem to register as real.

    We now have a Border Collie and a (mostly) Labrador. Neither of then seem able to 'see' the screen, but the Lab...who is otherwise very visual like Kia was...will look behind it to find an animal if she hears the sounds.

    I agree, nobody wants a dog to grow up and sound like Mr Peabody. (Rocky & Bullwinkle Show) w/ Mr Peabody & Sherman using the Wayback Machine :D
