My dog, Bear, likes very much to watch TV. Whenever another dog appears on the screen he growls a warning and if it doesn't vanish right away he starts barking at it. Over the years he has extended this treatment to include cats, birds, horses, cows, goats, indeed any animal. It doesn't matter if it is a movie, a TV show, or a commercial. He also growls and barks at animated cartoons of animals, and it doesn't seem to matter if the animation is well done. Recently there was a movie with a scene of a boy making shadow puppets. Sure enough Bear's ears perked up and as soon as the shadow made a representation of a howling wolf the barking began.
