Spoiler Alert…West Coasters stop reading until you see the show.
How does it feel American dog lovers? You know what I’m talking about. That’s right, I’m typing about this week’s Greatest American Dog show and the outcome.
After last week’s travesty, the judges did themselves proud this week. I don’t mean to be, uhmm, mean but everybody’s favorite boo hoo girl was asked to take the last lap. But more on that later.
The show started off with a little competition where the contestants were asked to walk across a thin platform. Unfortunately it wasn’t the human contestants. At first glance it appeared this could be a dangerous event, but after going back to the videotape I decided the distance from platform to mud was pretty small, plus the beam was carpeted. It was a blue berber if you really need to know.
Surprisingly only two teams made it across; Teresa and Leroy in 5 seconds and Bill and Star in 16 seconds. In a very sweet move, Teresa gave Bill the Dog Bone Suite even though she won the event. She realized Bill missed his family, and one of the perks of getting the suite is getting to have pictures of your family surround you. It was very nice and touching.
The main contest was for each of the teams to choreograph a dance routine. There were some really cute routines most notably Lori and Andrew’s and Bill and Star’s. On the down side there were some truly embarrassing routines as well. Brandy and Beacon were a train wreck as were Laura and Preston. I thought Beth Joy grabbing Bella Starlet’s paws and walking around with her during the competition should have put them in the bottom three. Is it me or do others think this dancing thing probably goes on in their house every Saturday night?
In the end it was a no brainer because nothing was going to pry the last lap leash out of Brandy’s hand this week.
As far as controversy goes, there really wasn’t anything of note from the judging.
I’m still looking for more interaction with the dogs. Which reminds me…if you haven’t seen the video of the doggie dance routine shown at the bottom of this page, then you’re in for a treat!
Until next week…Stay!
