My son has always been wild about animals every since we got him a dog for his 5th birthday. I'm so glad he's got a show that can help develop that. Sure it's not National Geographic, but it's about friendship, adventure, and of course TONS of animals!! He's even started going on his own "adventures" with the dog! This show really lets a kid be a kid, it's cute, he loves it, I'm glad I get to talk about something I grew up with in a new light.
