    wow I am surprised at the high rating. I consider this to be the worst Family Guy episode ever, loaded with inconsistencies and not sure which way it wants to go - heartwarming story of a man and his dog or goofy send up. It works as neither. Brian agrees to go through with the show and all its indignities but then refuses to do a stunt no more humiliating than those that preceded it, getting all worked up over nothing. The very early episodes often suffered from an identity crisis but "Portrait of a Dog" really stands alone.
