I can hardly watch TV these days. Why? Because of the dogs. Really.
Last night I clicked on a video I'd received. It turned out to be the one I posted here a week or two ago, the one with the guy singing the puppies to sleep. When it began playing and the puppies were yipping, Jazi came unglued! I felt so awful! She spent several minutes looking for her babies, then she laid down next to me, sighed really big and became inert. It was about 30 minutes before she seemed to be back to herself, and that time was breaking my heart. I loved her and petted her, but she was just so sad.
This morning I was watching a movie which had dogs on a ranch. When they began barking, all my dogs scattered around the living room, looking for those other dogs, finally running to the door. They stood there barking until I got their attention and got them to settle down.
I've noticed that my new kids aren't used to TV. A knock on a door send them running to our door. A barking dog or crying child or a sharp voice jerks their heads up and they stare at the TV in bewilderment. I guess I could use earphones. But no, they need to get used to it.
LOL! Just this minute a commericial was on and a man was whistling in it. Sammy jumped up and ran to the door! Then he looked around and saw me, and cocked his head like, "How'd you do that?" I guess he thought it was me whistling outside.
Yeah, we are still adjusting here. Looks like it's gonna be a while!
