Greatest American Dog: All the Antics, All the Fun!

Seriously, the premiere of Greatest American Dog was all I could have hoped for and more – but with 12 dogs (and 12 strangers) living together in a house, what else could I expect? Featuring misbehaving mutts and purebreds alike and challenges like doggy musical chairs, it was almost as funny watching the owners try to get their dogs to listen as it was to watch the dogs themselves. Learn a little more about the show (and see my favorite act) when you

The contestants broke up into three teams for final performances in the first elimination of the series. While all the pups were cute, I loved that most of them weren't very different than our pets at home – fairly obedient but far from show dog performance perfection. Check out the fab Aloha team below.

I'm not sure if it was Preston's Mohawk or the incredibly trained Galaxy, but I felt this was the most cohesive theme and group. If you missed last night's show, watch the entire thing online at CBS.com.

I have to admit I actually enjoyed this show! Though I'm not sure I can take watching the elimination at the end any more. Its much easier to watch people you don't like get eliminated then it is to watch innocent little pups get eliminated by no fault of their own! I do have to say though, JD and Galaxy had a leg up on all the competition since he's an agility trained dog. I mean come on the first challenge it was an agility table and you could hear that JD had a command for it (as most agility dogs do). There were a few other dogs that had commands for it as well, but JD had the most experience and Galaxy is obviously very well trained. I hope that future events will be geared towards any dog winning. I guess that would mean they would have to be new and unique to all.
