Heather Havrilesky in her “I Like to Watch” TV column over at Salon says Showdog Moms & Dads is like Best in Show, but because it’s real it’s a little less funny and a little more depressing. But in a good way.
Yes, “Showdog Moms & Dads” hits a little too close to home for comfort. While we could chuckle heartily as the depraved parents on “Showbiz Moms & Dads” screwed up their children, I think we can all agree that screwing up a little dog’s self-esteem is no laughing matter. And, while we wouldn’t dream of making our kid traipse across a stage at age 3 singing “God Bless America,” we might just purchase a rhinestone-studded collar for our pooch. In fact, we might’ve purchased one several months ago.
If you haven’t been watching Showdog Moms And Dads, you’ve been missing one of the most hilarious hours of television. Some freaky people. The WOW Report has podcasts of all the moms and dads, which give you a little more insight on these dog lovers. You can catch the show on Bravo.
