Mack and the TV

This is one of Mack's favorite past times - waiting for an animal or something that resembles an animal, to come on TV.  Then he barks his head off until it's gone.  He has also been known to get up on his hind legs and try to "get" the animal on TV.  That is frowned upon!  No toe nail holes in this expensive TV!!!!
So now he still barks, but refrains from putting his feet on the TV.  Maybe the TV should not be placed where he can reach it....just a thought. 

After looking at the picture on the screen, I have no idea what he was watching.  That is a scary picture.  I'd be barking at that.

Hu-mom and hu-dad even took Mack to a dog trainer to see if he could be "re-trained".  Well, they must have used the wrong process for Mack, because nothing worked, not even close.   You know pugs, they are known to be a little stubborn.  So they wrote off the  expense up to experience and learned that Mack loves pieces of hot dog and can even bark with pieces of hot dog in his mouth.

Mack has learned to listen for the sounds of some commercials, like dog food and cat food, and can wake up from a deep sleep in a nano second and bark like there's no tomorrow. Hu-mom and hu-dad try to hide his eyes if at all possible so he won't see, ha ha ha.  

They should have gotten another puggle, we don't bark at the stupid TV!

We're having a great non-heat day today in Northern Virginia.  Only 85 compared to the last few days of high 90's!  Enjoy it while it lasts.

Hi Minnie and Mack\I do the same thing. My pastime is barking at Hockey and Baseball games. My favorite player is Joe Thornton of the San Jose Sharks and when he is on the screen I cannot help barking as loud and as long as possible.
Love Noodles

Hi Mackie!

Well DUH, you like to let the peeps know when other animals are on TV! You're just HELPING!

I only bark at other Pugs (Mom doesn't understand how I KNOW what a Pug is!) and I bark at Rachael Ray....something about her voice.

I bark at the tv when there's a ringing doorbell on tv. I don't know why but that's what I do. Maybe I'm part puggle.

Pugs are just a teeny bit stubborn but that's what makes up lovable :) Tell your peeps to stop wasting time trying to retrain Mack. It's a waste of time and money.

We're feeling the same way about the heat here! Mack, dude, you need to chillax! If the TV falls on your head, that's no good at all!

Try watching a horse race! Impossible! We are from Maryland and just watched the Preakness. Our first pug Romeo was the worst, my fav picture of him is when we were trying to watch the movie "Air Bud" and he was right up on the TV. Sorry to say Romeo left us in 2008 but that picture still is on the top of our TV for a tribute to him.

What a character...and a smarty pants for differentiating between commercials!

Oh Minnie Sequoia is just like Mack...and if there is animals on or cartoons she goes nuts. But I (Tuni) can't see that far so I sit silently like you!

For the records heres..... I am exactly the same ways. I actually broke our last TV cuz a horse came on and I got all excited ran up to it and slammed the tv against the wall with my front legs and body weight. Mum was not happy, Dad was totally upset as he could't watch hockey. So now the tv is much higher but I still barks and charge at its.

I'm more like Tiffy and only react to sounds that remind me of a doorbell or more regularly an alarm clock that sounds like my pill reminders...sometimes I go crazy and demand a "treat" even when it's not time!
