Reception[edit]

The program has received mixed reviews. The New York Times called it possibly "The most wholesome reality show on television right now," noting "it succeeds in being as entertaining as less-wholesome shows is a testament to the wry good humor and general niceness of its subjects".[2] The AV Club was less positive, with the reviewer saying that the show "will probably be a goldmine for [clip show program] The Soup" while noting that the program "was touching in ways I didn’t expect as well as disturbing in ways I didn’t expect".[9] A reviewer from the Arkansas Times was negative, saying that pet lovers will find that the show "is going to make you want to scream and jump backwards through a plate glass window", and that the reviewer "couldn't stop chuckling at some of the seemingly-heartwarming situations captured in the clips I saw".[10]
