Interesting Topic because just as I was turning on the computer our Mini Schnauzer, Humphrie" started his whine/bark at a particular commercial that was on TV.

We have discovered that certain ad's and certain Music causes this reaction....The Barnes Injury Attorney is one such commercial But most notably is the "My Pillow" commercial. If I don't remember to mute the TV during these commercials, I'm in store for about 90 seconds of howling....the worst thing is Humphrie is teaching Georgie the same tactic. It's almost as if it is "painful" for the doggies to hear whatever it is they hear...so I do make it a point to remember the triggers which causes the hysteria.[emoticon]

My Bat-dog used to howl with one specific song, Since I Met You Baby. Billie Swan sings and Boots Randolph llays the sax. Bat-dog would howl along with the sax. Something about the tone just spoke to her. She still pays attention to the song, but doesn't get into a full singalong - just more of a humming along.

Dog-bird calls for his flock daily. The dogs will spend 10-15 minutes howling back their response. Every day.

Ed and I were laughing a couple of days ago - puppy Augie was frantically squeaking a dog toy - then let out a LOUD and long howl. We figured he was hurting his own ears? Duh!

Something I took as a good sign - they were showing the fireworks after a NASCAR race, and Augie ran to the TV to watch that - seemed fascinated. Crossing my fingers he's not afraid of them next year near the 4th of July - living on a lake means we are subjected to them for weeks....

My cat watches wildlife programs; especially those with dogs/wolves, and cats, big & small. He sat next to me on the sofa and watched all of the PBS "Urban Racoon." My dad's cat always watched Roller Derby with him. The only program my dog ever watched was one showing a Labrador Retriever training in a field.

Should I be concerned? The Cat in Training, who watches tv a lot, just took my debit card from me...

Have there been any "as seen on tv" cat stuff???
