How do faces keep getting worse.
There is nothing enjoyable about that dog's face.
So what does he DO with the blog? I get that he talks; that part of the premise has been well established. But I want to know about the blog part. That's the hook, dammit! Talking dogs are a dime a dozen, but a blogging dog is something special.
I bet it's a blog dedicated to rightwing politics and MMA themed slash fiction.
Wikipedia won't allow a page on Faithmouse due to "lack of notability", yet Disney shits this out and gets a six paragraph writeup before the series even premiers.
Wait, the talking dog blogs secretly about his family? HOW? Who out there is making dog-compatible keyboards?
Or by "blog", do they mean he goes out and pees on things other dogs will find?
I was in the bathroom throwing up
Anton Chekhov might have written A Dog with A Blog. It would deal with how the Internet has exposed the loneliness of the human condition and our medium of choice for this generation - blogs - illustrate the vast, seemingly insurmountable divide between what we want to communicate with one another and what we wind up communicating.
Chekhov is dead, so Disney made this.
"What are you gonna do now, Poochinski?"
"First, I'm gonna try lickin' myself. Then, I'm gonna find my killer. And you're gonna help!"
"Look at me. I've become a dog...
"WITH A BLOG!"
(Walkin' on Sunshine begins playing and suddenly everyone is wearing a hawaiian shirt and sunglasses.)
Dog with a Tumblr: on tonight's episode, the dog reacts badly to a post on another tumblr and accuses the author of being a fascist bigot for not including trigger warnings and that they "need to check their privilege" and be respectful of the discrimination that otakukin with a dozen fictive headmates like himself often face.

Big deal. The Littlest Hobo's on Twitter, which renders Dog with a Blog superfluous:
|WHO WANTS DESSERT |
In the 80s it was random toy lines and videogames. In the 90s it was extreme sports. Now the clueless execs are just greenlighting anything with a tech buzzword to try to appeal to The YouTube Generation™
I wish the dog was George Lopez.
I wish the talking dog had George Lopez's head AND NOBODY IN THE FAMILY NOTICED.
The youtube squirrel show should be next in line. "Hey guyz, check out my nuts! That is, the nuts i picked today for winter, tee-hee!"

And I didn't even get a polite rejection letter for my "Hog With a Shotgun" spec script.
Now I'm picturing the hobo with a shotgun crossover episode

This summer, get ready to squeal...
like a human.
Nowadays talking animals are a sign the writer is phoning it in and pushing something out that children will flock to see, regardless of quality. There are some exceptions (Secret of NIMH, Watership Down, Twilight of the Cockroaches, Maus) but sadly those are rare exceptions.
I forgot to include Cat Shit One in the above list. Sorry, Caminante.
All this made me think of of K. Thor's old dog's journal thing he used to have.

Like opening a bottle of Boone Hill, circa 1972.

You know it says something when Vampire Dog has better talking dog effects than your talking dog show.
The title is Dog with a Blog.
Why does he need to talk??? A blog requires typing skills, not speech. The title isn't Dog with a Radio Talk Show. Having him speak is just stupid.
Why does that bother me so much?
Maybe he blogs using dictation software.

Needs 'another goddamn disney talking dog movie' tag.
Yes, it's not a movie, but I believe it still counts.
One of the negative side effects of watching Gravity Falls.

But thanks for trying, Homer.
The Disney Channel is some sort of Hellworld reincarnation of TGIF, right?

That dog is an asshole.

I don't know how I missed this when it was up, I love this show, Stan is great, and he even has a real blog, and yes he types with paws!
I'm collecting all of the episodes.

I forgot to put my stars in for it, and yes, you'll want to know that it's been renewed and has just started season 2 as I write this.
Disney sitcoms. They make syndicated TV of the 80's look like fucking Shakespeare.
A year later, I have watched the entire first season of this and it is awesome. No, seriously. Seriously.
