World’s Most Amazing Dog episode 4 featured a lot of clever puppers.
World’s Most Amazing Dog episode four, “Now That’s a PAWposal!”, featured a lot of intelligent dogs, though these pooches’ tricks were somewhat underwhelming.
The canine version of America’s Got Talent is hosted by comedian Preacher Lawson and hosted by actor George Lopez (George Lopez, Swing Vote, Beverly Hills Chihuahua) and TV personality Lisa Vanderpump (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules). They judge each video on three criteria: Difficulty of Trick, Personality and Wow Factor.
New episodes drop at 8 p.m. ET on Thursdays, and viewers can vote for their favorite to advance for the next 48 hours on the Facebook mobile app.
First up was Paige from Houston, Texas, who belongs to Gerrard Anthony. She seems to be a Chihuahua mix, and in her audition video she sang along to Gerrard’s rendition of a gospel song.
Next came a Dachshund from Belfast, Ireland, named Harlso. He belongs to Paul Lavery, and he helped Paul propose to his girlfriend. In his audition video he balanced a stack of 16 cookies on his head without dropping any.
Fig, a 3-year-old Golden Retriever from British Columbia, was third to run. He belongs to Jason Docherty, and in his audition video he retrieved a beer from the fridge, remembering to close the door.
Solo the Bulldog was next. He belongs to Cheryl Knapp from Bellingham, Washington, and in his audition video he did a lot of human things: Playing a piano, flushing a toilet, riding a mini skateboard and driving a Power Wheels car. This would be mildly interesting if he were a toddler, but for a dog it’s a little uncomfortable – way too much pet parenting.
The penultimate dog to go was Charlie Dawg the Golden Retriever from Secane, Pennsylvania, who belongs to Helen Sanders. He might be an old geezer at nine years old, but his reaction time is still sharp: in his audition video he whipped a Milk-Bone off his nose and into his mouth in no time.
The final dog of the episode to go came from Waco, Texas, an Australian Cattle Dog named Super Nova. She displayed her incredible balance in her audition video.
As always, there were several adoptable dogs featured on the show, from shelters and rescue organizations from around the world – in alphabetical order, the ASPCA, England’s Battersea, Thailand’s Soi Dog, Vanderpump Dogs, and India’s World For All.
The judges went with Solo to advance to the semifinals, though I (Wes) would have chosen Harlso, because his was the best trick in a rather weak field of contenders this episode.
The contestants are vying for a luxury doghouse and $100,000.
In the last episode of the show, fans voted Tess the Border Collie to advance to the semifinals.
