to quote Queen about my hopes about this game show/reality "contest." One dog, in the episode's challenge to cut 'unworthy' competitors, is saved while one of the three that actually performed the stated challenge was booted.
After reading about the last episode on the web site for the American Humane Association, I realized that this IS just another reality show, but I love watching the dogs. I may be naive, but I like to think of reality shows notbeing too "cooked". I understand edits for time or a supposed storyline, but easily dealt with situations just ignored and not spoken of, smacks of contempt for the audience- US, you and me! (Fixes include a voice-over/text/crawl telling us that there actually was a few days of familiarization with the obstacle equipment and jumping by ALL the dogs.)
I've made it so far, I will see it through, but my heart is sadder and angrier.
