My daughter started watching this show a while ago, and I usually sit down with her sometimes to see it. Honestly, the only reason I DO is to spend time with her. The show is complete GARBAGE. First of all, they HAD to use the recycled "talking animal" idea. Like that hasn't been in BILLIONS of other movies/shows. (Marmaduke, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Underdog, etc) On top of that, the family is a horrible example. My 4 year old daughter who sometimes passes by to watch the show a bit is currently in that "Copy everything other people do" phase. She's starting to have a little bit more attitude since watching that show, probably from the Chloe girl. She also broke into my makeup trying to look like Chloe, who obviously doesn't just wear stage makeup. The two parents seriously treat each other like crap. There can't be one scene where another family member brings another down. The Avery character, however is a somewhat good example, as she cares about getting good grades, is responsible, etc. and can be someone a tween girl can look up to, besides her sarcastic comments. The talking dog is obviously just to add some spice to this disappointing boring sitcom, and the fact that he has a blog is probably just so the title could rhyme. The acting is completely horrible, at least for most of the people. Overall, I'd say that if you're going to let your kids watch this show, at lease tell them first that all the characters are not exactly the best role models, and at least limit 1 episode a month.
