If you haven’t seen the show: “It’s Me or the Dog” is essentially the canine version of Supernanny, give or take a leash.
Stains’ pained, hypnotic gaze made him an instant hit with fans, most of whom would probably give a similar look if some random British lady invaded their household, stuck a plate of cupcakes in front of their noses and then told them they couldn’t have any with a clipped “AWAY!” command.
And so this episode illustrates both how to deal with a dog who sneaks human food, and why Victoria Stilwell is not the host of “The Biggest Loser.”
While the counter-surfing Stains didn’t get to eat a cupcake that day, things are looking up for him: he has his own website now, and his human parents have created an online Stains shop for him as well.
Stains himself is the recipient of a Fantasy T-Wearer award today, with the “I Eat Carbs” shirt at right.
For those of you who didn’t get to see this classic canine moment, here it is. Disclaimer: no dogs or cupcakes were harmed during the filming of this episode, but a sandwich was horribly maimed.
