Why would anyone spend any time or any money to make a DVD called America's Cutest Dog? If you're Animal Planet, you probably didn't actually spend much of either.
If you want to make a marketable video with a big "awwww" factor, just ask camera-wielding dog owners to send in the cutest clips of their canines, promise to bestow the title of "America's Cutest Dog" on one of the pups and watch the material roll in.
OK, so it's not Citizen Kane. But this series, which was originally only online, might be a good fill-in for dog lovers while they wait for the next Puppy Bowl.
And if that isn't enough, the DVD includes clips from both "America's Cutest Cat" and the "World's Ugliest Dog" competition.
