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.
