Homeless for the Holidays (#3.10)
23 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It was interesting to watch the story of Jeanie develop. For once it was great to see the discussions between Mark and Kerry. Mark is such a character that one sees that he was not being bigoted even as one disagrees with him. And the moment when he lets Jeanie give him stitches was beautiful. So well thought through and executed. So was conversation Carol had with Jeanie. It is actually beautiful how it folded out, a great Christmas episode.

Also I am glad Mark got that adorable doggie now. And there is nothing wrong with mixed breeds! Don't support breeders, better adopt those wonderful dogs out there who may die in shelters because some people want to make money on breeding dogs and others care more about the brand even when it comes to a living being.
