    My Dog Watches Tv

    To get him in the house I will say his show is on, I put movies on for him, and this year he starting watching scary movies. He gets mad if you talk during it, and if there a commercial he will come to me but keep looking back to see if his shows back on. He's a smart creepy boy...

    My Golden Lab
