I ask this because I once had a Bouvier/Briard cross, and once, a hair of his got stuck in front of the lamp.
Try turning the TV off, and using either compressed air or a vacuum, try to stir things up around the lamp compartment (though be careful not to knock anything around, or if using compressed air, don't aim at any components directly).

My tv has this lines that bend over the front top of the screen and when an object moves through the lines the image appers from the the top of where the line begins...and the tv goes black every once and...

This sounds like a vertical deflection fault. There are some components that are failing in the vertical deflection area that are starting to fail. It is very common in many of the sets that there are electrolytic capacitors in the vertical amp section that are gong out of specifications.

When you have at the top or the bottom of the screen where the vertical axis is compressed, and the picture in the compressed area looks like it is inverted and going over on itself, this is called "vertical fold-over".

An experienced TV service technician should be able to service this for you.
