Fun for kids

I have a 2 year old and we somehow stumbled onto this little gem. My daughter loves it and so we watch it 2-3 times per day. At first, I thought it was just so bad but I have to admit that it’s grown on me. It’s cute because the dog can do anything and it’s funny for my 2- year old who gets that dogs can’t do things like drive cars, etc.
