What would cause my 2.4Ghz wireless mouse to become erratic when my dog's head is nearby?
I have a black lab who, as long as I can recall, has a head which interrupts 2.4Ghz signals, most notably my wireless mouse. He doesn't need to be between the receiver and transmitter to cause interference. He simply needs to be _near_ either of the two, which rules out line of sight interference.
I thought I was crazy when the thought occurred to me, but i have ruled out every other cause, going so far as to changing rooms and even houses for testing, with the same results every time. If he is within 2-3 feet of either the receiver or the transmitter, inference abound.
It should also be noted, I have a collie mix who does not affect it at all, no matter the distance, only the lab. Unfortunately I don't have another labrador to test for comparison.
How does my lab do it?
