DOG DAYS ON TELEVISION
While India may be adding religious channels by the day, San Diego in the US has a 24-hour programming for canines. Yes, a special TV channel just for Rufus. Makers of DogTV say dogs left alone at home will no longer wilt in loneliness, but will have a relaxing time that takes care of the normal separation anxiety that they can suffer from. Experts, of course, say that dogs can see motion on TV only as still images and are unlikely to be perked by screen action. But in a test at California, pets isolated in a behaviour evaluation ward were quieter and less than normal with DogTV on.
