Tonight I was watching a movie called Limitless and it was just getting to an intense part when my two dogs, who had been contently sleeping on the rug while I watched my movie, decided they needed something. They got up and started tag-team circling me while they panted heavily. This is always a sign that they want to go outside or want something to drink or just plain want something.
However, I was determined to ignore them and make them go back to laying on the rug without interrupting my movie. It was not really working, but I was successfully ignoring them.
Then my older dog, Lady, quietly came over, took a look at the remote control that was on the ottoman (on which I had my feet propped) and “purposefully” laid her head on top of the remote and shut the tv off! I couldn’t believe it! Not only could I not see the intense scene that was going on, but suddenly the remote for the dvd player didn’t want to stop the movie. I couldn’t even get the dvd player to shut off, so I had to get up and unplug the dvd player from the wall.
But, of course, that caused my movie to start back at the beginning again….*sigh*. So, I let the dogs outside, gave them a drink, gave them a treat, and realized that the office was going to be on in 5 minutes…so I decided to watch the office before I went back to watching my movie…
Guess my doggy won that one. I also decided to write this blog before I went back to watching my movie. But now I’m going to go back and find my spot in my movie and I’m also one blog closer to the music! 🙂
This is Lady, the one who shut the tv off on me. See how smart she is, she even plays xbox! 🙂
Oh look, Jazmin plays xbox too, does that mean that she is going to shut the tv off on me the next time I ignore them?
