It's better than training dogs to fight like crazy
15 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the previews on CBS, I said to myself that I'm watching Greatest American Dog, especially since I couldn't get the fact about what Michael Vick did to those dogs out of my mind. I'm never going to forget about this one video I saw on YouTube last spring and throughout the summer. Me noticing how bad those animals got hurt, put tears to my eyes. So, as far as I was concerned, I would be watching that show the first night that it appears. After seeing all the episodes, that show rocked, especially Teresa & Leroy, Travis & Presley, JD & Galaxy, Bill & Star, Beth Joy & Bella Starlet, and David & Elvis. It was sometimes funny. I liked hearing Teresa tell her dog to shut up. That was funny. Travis and JD rocked with their pets. Those dudes are cool. I sort of liked seeing JD's dog licking JD in the face. I found that sweet and repulsive. I would laugh and be all like "Eww." Travis was the bomb with his dog as well. Although, I felt bad seeing David & Elvis go. I like that cute little Jack Russell. I myself have Cynophobia, which means that I have fear of dogs, but I'm starting to like Jack Russells. They're so cute. It also sucked seeing Bill & Star go too. All the Jack Russells were gone. But, at least Bill could go back home to his wife. I also felt really bad for Beth Joy & Bella Starlet. I can't believe that Laurie said something negative about those two. Beth Joy was crying when she heard it. She's never cruel to that little canine. I felt worse when Bella Starlet started acting aggressive in the episode "The Big Dig." Plus, her dog barely did anything and it probably needed her mother. Maybe it was time for them to go. That episode was on my mind the day after it came on, especially the part seeing her walk out the door after being sent home. Thinking about how aggressive Bella Starlet got and seeing them go made me cry. Anyways, episode 9 is something I can't get off my mind. There was the scene where after Presley got distracted and got out of the circle, I just kept saying "They're gonna get kicked out" really fast repeatedly. I wouldn't shut up with that. I was afraid that Travis & Presley would get kicked out and that would be a real bummer to see them go. Thank god they didn't, but it sucked seeing JD & Galaxy go home. He was so cool and so was his dog. But it was more cool seeing everyone that got sent home on the last episode when the judges were getting ready to announce the winner of Greatest American Dog. I was so glad Presley won. I was jumping up and down saying "Presley won!" a few times. That show was the bomb. It was awesome. I was glad to see them leave as winners.
