Showdog Moms & Dads “delivers a veritable feast of ‘Stupid Owner Tricks,’ ” says Variety, “one irresistible bowl-full at a time.” How’s that for a catchy blurb. Series begins on Bravo March 30.
As in “Best in Show,” Christopher Guest’s spoof of the dog-competition world, the five profiled contenders eventually will convene at the National Dog Show in Philadelphia. The group includes Lourdes, who was unable to conceive herself and cries when a veterinary procedure impregnates her German shepherd, Katie; George and Connie, seemingly impersonating the Eugene Levy/Catherine O’Hara pairing in the aforementioned film; and Kyra, who tours with performing Weimaraner Chalcy, a beast almost certainly smarter than any of the people onscreen. . . . Lourdes, meanwhile, explains that Katie is serving as a “teaser bitch” for harvesting sperm from Max (which elicits more tears) — a term sure to find life beyond the program.
