The other day we were flipping channels and happened upon the canine version of extreme sports. Wasabi ran to the tv. He barked. When one of the dogs ran off the side of the screen, Wasabi lunged into the space beside the TV to see where he went.
I'm not sure what was different about this show. He's never shown any interest in what was on TV before - even the dog food commercials. He has barked at doorbells or knocks on a door on TV before but those are all audio. He's never given any indication that he connected the images with real life at all - until now.
He was hilarious. The trainers on the show would hold up a toy and Wasabi would rock up on his back legs like he was going to catch it. I was laughing too hard to get a picture of it, but the funniest moment was when Wasabi got right up the TV and tried to sniff the butt of a dog onscreen.
