Man's Best Friend (#1.13)
1 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The doggie was precious! One thing I liked about this episode was how they send out the message that it takes some effort to take care of a dog.

What I don't like is that they just give it away after he destroys a few things instead of trying to work on his behavior. In our time people have this sad belief that it is impossible to change a dog and many are abandoned because of it. At least the Winslows found him a nice home.

Carl was great in this episode. I loved him eating that dog candy and loving it. And it was wonderful how he loved that dog so much, even though it sure had something to do with him chasing Steve Urkle away!
