Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Please don't cancel this show!!

I love this show and I'm very selective. I love that it has a truly unique perspective. The talking dog thing should be ridiculous but it completely works. ("Episodes" made fun of a talking dog show). This show has tremendous potential due primarily to its excellent cast. What can I do to help keep this show alive?

ADORABLE SHOW! I think the script is clever and fun and the acting by all is just perfect! I look forward to seeing it each week as do all my friends. Bravo!!!
