I honestly believe they stuck with the whole "blog" shtick just for the title pun... Well, Dog With a Blog, a show about life, family, and parental immaturity. You've got the talking dog, you've got the prodigy, you've got the high-school drop out, you've got the juvenile trouble-maker, and you've got the quirky parents. The parents, however, are not only quirky, but incredibly irresponsible, naive, and disorganized. I mean, you can't veil the truth of your dog's incredible speech capabilities to your mother and father all their life, unless of course they're somewhat deaf, or borderline schizophrenics, or possibly both. Which leads us to the question--Do the parents in fact have mental drawbacks that gives their children the advantage to keep their talking dog a secret? It seems unlikely that a Disney show would go along with that. But, if you take a look, you notice that they subtly lack in the learning curve department. In one episode, they smuggle a hog back into--wherever the heck the children stole it prior to this, acting like it's some kind of game. Do they not know that they can be arrested for this? And to top it all off, they drag their own children into the scheme; they literally endanger their children for what they think is a quirky game of survival, when they could've just contacted the school where they stole it from and settled their differences. From what I know, the episode ends with no consequences for the children, allowing them to continuously threaten and deteriorate their home, money management, and possibly their own lives. And in another episode, they lose one of their children entirely! And instead of taking responsibility and making darn sure it won't happen again, they indirectly laugh off the entire situation. Even the neighbor kid (which we're suppose to dislike) had more maturity than the parents, returning the child back home. Heck, if they weren't so lucky, he could've called Child Protective Services for child endangerment (being that they lost her multiple times throughout the episode). That child could've been kidnapped by a criminal for all they knew. She could've been hit by cars. And yet, no appropriate consequences were given to the children (they lost her first), and no one was taught a proper lesson, for they brushed it off, waiting for the next life-threatening scenario to play out. My gosh, I know for sure I'm taking this much too seriously, but this just disturbs me on so many levels. Please, parents. If this can't teach you about family, it'll certainly teach you how not to be an idiotic guardian.
