Radley loves TV. And I mean really loves TV. It always cracks me up, but it just reiterates how smart he is in my opinion.
Some of Radley’s favorite shows are:
Friends (as seen above) // Especially any episode with Marcel the monkey. If I had Marcel’s scenes on repeat, I swear I’d never have to worry about entertaining Radley again.
South Park // I think it has something to do with the squeaky high voices of the characters and the way they bounce across the screen instead of walking. In my old apartment he would stand with his front paws on the TV stand in our living room just so he could be up close to the TV when South Park came on.
Dora the Explorer // Really any little kid cartoon for that matter. They tend to have funny noises and songs. I’ve even watched him wag his tail while watching cartoons.
Commercials // Again, loud noises and lots of fast moving text and objects. He’s the only dog I’ve ever had that will watch an entire several minute commercial break without looking away.
Dog Competitions // This is obviously a given why he likes these, but he whines and paces back and forth in front of the TV when these are on instead of sitting back and quietly watching, so I don’t like to worry him with these.
Of course, who knows what he’s actually thinking while he’s watching all this. Nevertheless, I always leave cartoons on for him during the day when I go to work in case he gets bored.
Does your dog do anything funny like this?
