Attack Dog

February 26, 2018

We are compiling a list of things on TV that set off our crazy dog.  We have a TV mounted on the wall above the fireplace and Tor, our 2-year-old Rottweiler stands on his hind feet to challenge things on the tv.


Things like:

  • Alaskan sled dogs
  • Tattooed prisoners
  • Redheads (sorry, Lisa)
  • Horses
  • Anyone in a jumpsuit


While he is standing on his back feet, sometime he loses his balance and falls backwards.  This doesn’t stop him from challenging the next red-headed prisoner wearing a jumpsuit on horseback mushing Alaskan sled dogs.


Other things that set him off:

  • When the thirty-year-old maple near our deck sneaks up on him
  • The wind
  • Snow on the deck
  • Windows (sometimes they sneak up on him, too)
  • Cars on the road half a mile away that he can only see when the leaves are off the trees
  • Leaves falling off the trees
  • Either cat
  • His crate
  • His food dish
  • Our son (with a blanket draped over his shoulders)


Oh yeah, and shadows.


We live such a calm life.



I asked Supergirl if she would write a few blog posts about our real lives. We’re calling it Hank and Jane IRL, and if you don’t get the Hank and Jane reference, you need to read Errant Gods 🙂
