OK, I know they don't get this from TV, but it makes me wonder. While Dozer and Digger were playing tonight, Digger jumped over 4 ft off the couch and slammed Dozer to the floor. Dozer got up and pushed Digger over and pinned him down. It was like watching pro wrestling.

I'll be lucky if these two don't kill each other. At least they will sleep tonight.

My BH likes to play with his brother and sister every once and awhile. He is getting old now (9 yrs) so its nice to see him play.

By the way, when I first saw the title of your thread, I thought you were going to say you are limiting your dogs TV time. I was laughing because I thought I was the only one out there crazy enough to put on Animal Planet for my dogs to watch when I leave the house to run errands!

Peanut and my doberman Pippin (ATB) did this all the time when Peanut first came to the house, they played "WWF" (at the time) in the living room. I still had carpet and a hide-a-bed couch (queen size). One day, Peanut was rounding the corner and Pippin body slammed her into the couch hard enough to lift the couch up off the ground into the wall. Didn't seem bother Peanut at the time..but w/in 2 days, she couldn't walk! I panicked and took her to the vet. I had just moved into the house and was broke at the time, I told the vet "I have 125.00 and that's it.", she said "don't worry, we'll figure it out. They x-rayed her and told me she had sprained her back pretty bad but would be ok in a couple of days. Also found out she had the beginnings of hip displaysia...yeah! All in all, cost me $126 and some change...some vets are more about helping the animal than the money..thankfully...

Peanut and Tarquin play rough, but no where near the way she played with the Doberman..'course Peanut outweighs Tarquin by about 20lbs...

I posted it like this, because people blame TV for the trouble their kids get into. My "kids" don't pay any attention to the TV. When I first hooked up the surround sound, a cat meow came across during a commercial, they thought it was outside and took off running after it. (wasn't there)
My parents dog on the other hand would drive me nuts. He barks and whines every time kids or certain music come on TV.
