My Funny Buddy, Stanley

I’ve told you before that every night Stanley and I watch television. He seems to enjoy dog shows. Any kind of dog shows. Lately, I’ve been tuning in to vet shows on Tubi and he really likes those, too.

Except for one thing.

Stanley doesn’t like horses.

It’s the funniest thing. If it’s a show about large animals it will naturally segue to the treatment of a horse. When that happens, Stanley goes berserk. He races off the couch to stand on the hearth, looking up at the TV. (It’s mounted above the fireplace.)

He won’t settle down, either, for quite a while after the horse episode. He doesn’t want to play. He doesn’t want a treat. He wants to bark at the horse. For a very long time.

He will bark at dogs from time to time, but it’s nothing to what he does at the sight of a horse.

  1. A lot of dogs don’t like horses. Last weekend, a dog got away from its owner at the Gasperilla festival in Tampa and ran in front of 3 mounted policemen and at the horses. the owner couldn’t catch it and the police were forced to shoot it sadly as it was trying to bite the horses. Never take Stanley anywhere that there’s a festival with mounted police.

  2. What Game will Stanley watch sunday? Dog Bowl (on animal Planet), Kitten Bowl (Hallmark) I also hear there is a Bowl game that is done by Humans also that sunday
