* MyInstinctsAreShowing / TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Eric and Rex are still themselves as dogs, but they are still dogs - they're fine with doing dog things that as boys they wouldn't want to do (like eating dog food) and instinctively do things a dog would do in situations (IE: Rex getting his father's slipper and the paper when he wants his attention, or rooting through trash when frustrated).

Woof! was a British tv series, running from 1989 to 1997, about a boy who periodically changes in a dog, similar in premise to The Shaggy Dog.

The series begins with a PilotMovie, about a kid named Eric Banks who suddenly finds himself occasionally turning into a small dog (naturally, usually at the worst possible times), totally at random, and naturally getting into all sorts of odd situations because of it. Throughout the movie he and his friend Roy try to find out what's causing it, and keep it a secret from Eric's parents, teachers, and everyone in between.

Further through the show's run, as the actors playing Eric and Rachel grew older, the focus changed to a new kid Rex Thomas, who inherits Eric's curse, and his best friend Michael, who take up the SecretKeeper role.
