I just got done watching the first episode of The Greatest American Dog. I really enjoyed the show. I think that if you are a dog lover, you will like it too.
There was plenty of fun interaction among the dogs and their owners. In one instance, Tillman, the skateboarding Bulldog, got his skateboard stolen by Ezzie, the hyper Boston Terrier.
The first contest was a game of musical chairs with the dogs, which was great to watch. The dogs played musical chairs until only one dog was left. The winners, J.D. and Galaxy, got to stay in the amazing Dog Bone suite all by themselves. The rest of the dogs and owners had to share rooms. Except for one unlucky pair, David and Elvis, who had to stay outside in the doghouse – yes, the owner David too. The pair to stay in the doghouse was chosen by the dog bone winner, J.D.
But the doghouse wasn’t too bad, especially after the other contestants brought out an extra mattress, pillows, and goodies for David and Elvis. I think this was a smart move, since anyone could end up in the doghouse on future episodes, so they might as well set a precedent of taking care of the poor pair in the doghouse!
The next competition was a talent show, with three teams. Each team had to put on a show, and all the shows turned out pretty cute. The three dogs and their humans with the worst dog/owner interaction were singled out, and one of these would be eliminated.
It turned out that Michael and Ezzie were sent home. I wasn’t surprised, since the judges pointed out how nervous and scared Ezzie was. She was not enjoying herself at all in the talent competition. It made you wonder what Michael did to make Ezzie so nervous. I think it was better that they got sent home before Michael got Ezzie even more worked up. I felt sorry for the poor dog.
So goodbye, Michael and Ezzie, and I’m looking forward to next week’s episode of The Greatest American Dog!
