Is your dog addicted to Coronation Street?

Ok, taking a deep breath and preparing to write the oddest blog post of the year...

Is your dog addicted to Coronation Street?  Oh yes, I really said that. A press release from The Dogs Trust as the UK switches over to digital TV says that: ‘The way digital is delivered seems to make it easier for dogs to watch.  We've thought for some time that dogs love watching telly to relax, either with their owners or by themselves.’  And they reckon that Coronation Street is a canine favourite. 

Ok, I know they'd say that just to get their press release in the news, but you know, I'm thinking there just might be some dogs out there who lie on the sofa, howl along to the theme tune, whine every time Deirdre comes on screen, barks at Betty or wags its tail when it spots Eccles.  Email your pictures and Youtubes to us of proper pets and we'll blog the best Corrie canine fans.

Have a look here for a long list of Youtube clips showing dogs singing along to the Corrie theme tune.

Now, there is definitely something in this! Many years ago our dog always used to prick up his ears at the Corrie theme tune, bark at the cat and in the end starting jumping up at the screen. Can't remember him actually watching a whole episode though. However, we are of course talking way before digital. But there was certainly some recognition there!

I also have a friend whose dog used to run into the room as the theme started, wait for the cat, bark and then lose interest.

Dogs like Corrie - beat that, EastEnders!!!

Not only the dogs running for the screen, but my grandson used to do it too. He would crawl after the dogs, and pull himself up to wait for the cat. After that, he lost interest
