The One With The Dog Butler...
9 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode. I thought it was quite funny. I totally agree with Gloria about the dog butler, it's horrible. How could Jay ever like something like that?

In this episode, Gloria is scheming, and plotting to get rid of Jay's creepy, and obnoxious dog butler. Meanwhile, Claire finds a dirty picture on their computer, and she automatically assumes it is Luke's, but a guilty Phil doesn't come forward with the fact that it is his, sent to him in an email, for a while. And Cam's delightful, helpful, and caring nature gets him into trouble when he gets sucked into the gardener's problems, and Mitch desperately wants him to stay out of everyone's business.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
