TV goes to the dogs

NEW YORK — Workers who feel guilty for leaving their pooches unattended at home during work hours may soon feel a bit more relaxed at the office. That’s because the dogs could soon have some digital company in the form of a TV channel with programming just for canines. DOGTV, a 24-7 channel designed specifically for man’s best friend, will air in the United States next month on DirecTV. It hopes to attract dogs in some of the 46 million U.S. households that have at least one.
