Woof, everypups. I really have to say that last night's show was the worst I've seen, with the two lady judges screaming at each other over JD being the best part of the show. The Dog Bone Challenge was really lame. The teams were paired together and while one human was hidden in a wooden box the other human had to get one dog to ring a bell and then lead the remaining dog up the steps to the top of the wooden box. There the dog would dig until a lever was released, thus opening the door to the box. Travis and Presley teamed with Bill and Star, winning the challenge. The last challenge was a maze in which the dog had to work their way to the end with only their owner's voice to guide them. With one catch, there were three puppies that were also in the maze and they had to follow the dog out of the maze. Now I know everyone loves puppies but I think it was very irresponsible to introduce strange pups into the show. Many older dogs just don't appreciate that puppy energy and tend to get a little cranky which was obvious with Star as she did whatever she could to stay away from the puppies. Teresa and Leroy were picked Best in Show and Beth Joy and Bella Starlet were shown the Doggie Door.


I have to agree with you about the puppies,Scuba. That was just a bad idea. Sure Presley loved the pups but he's still a young dog. Some older dogs just don't like pups, not to mention the puppies were bigger than Andrew and Bella Starlet, no wonder they were freaked out. And after listening to those judges jump all over Bill for his aggressive treatment of Star, I'm beginning to think that Toby is right, the show is rigged and the judges just don't know what the hell is going on. I didn't see any thing wrong with the way Bill treated Star except making her run the maze. If he didn't make her run the maze then the judges would have been all over him for not challenging his dog. The judges stink like puppy poop and are doggies behinds.


Amen to that!!! Those judges are just getting worse with every show, though their little 'cat fight' was very entertaining. And about the puppies, it was just a bad idea. I considered myself to be somewhat of a young dog and I wouldn't want three rambunctious pups crawling all over me. It was a poor choice and whoever made it is a doggies behind. But I do have to say that Teresa and Leroy just ripped through that maze and beat out JD and Galaxy. Great job!!!


Well, I hate to sound like a broken record but I agree with everyone's take on PuppyGate. It was just a stupid idea to include the pups in the maze challenge. A couple of the older dogs actually snapped at the pups and though no pup was hurt, things could have gotten out of control. I do admit that the fight between the judges was the best part of the show, though I'm not really sure what the hell they were fighting about.


I've been saying it, the show is rigged and the judges suck!!! Really, jumping on Bill like that, poor guy. He was damned if he did and damned if he didn't and he knew it. On one hand the judges want you to challenge your dog but just don't do it if Miss Victoria is having a bad hair day. And as far as that little spat between the two lady judges, that was fixed to drive the ratings up.

we think the little cat fight was rigged. AND it was stupid. the puppies were a bad idea and the whole premise of the dogs leading them through the maze was dumb. how were the dogs supposed to know. dumb dumb. we think the show is trying to maximize the drama like reality shows do.

we still like Ball & Star
2nd pick = Travis & Presley

it seemed like right at the beginning of last night's show, they gave us a clue as to who would be leaving. they did it the week before also. we're going to pay careful attention next week and see if this happens again. it's almost like the person/dog that that particular episode displays in a negative light is the one that gets booted out.

yeah, the whole thing is rigged for ratings.

I am with Eduardo could you leave us a comment too the night it comes on??? We really want to see this show!!! teehee

Now guys we need your help. Especially since you are so close to Deming, New Mexico. Apache from Apaches Tribe tried to murder her Wheely Paco (I think you read about Paco from Mexico/Franc). She never Aire-lifted him to Airedale Heaven Hospital. She is holding him ransom. Please help me bully..urrr..I mean convince her to send him STAT.

GAD comes on Wednesday nights at 8p.m. and ever since Preston and Laura have left Daisy and I have been in mourning. If they can't win then we'll have to root for Andrew and Laurie since we obviously have to root for the only small dog left in the competition AND even though we KNOW Andrew can't possibly win because the challenges are biased against small dogs (something that really ticks Daisy off something fierce.)

Beth Joy DESERVED to go home. Rescue dogs with issues don't "work through" their issues by crying about them. That is a signal to stop. Something Beth Joy should have known. Never have I seen a more whiny dog owner. She was placed on that show for ratings- the one "we love to hate", I suppose.

If Andrew can't maintain the flag for small dogs (and we know he won't because they'll have the next challenge be how many frisbees can the dogs catch in five minutes) then we hope Star can shine. Bill deserves it for his calm and cool approach with the dogs.

I missed it but sounds like I didn't miss much. Too bad. I always liked Miss Victoria on Animal Planet cause she likes to give lots of treats. I'll have to pay more attention to her hair.
