A Dog's View of "The Bachelor"

Abby Lab here - My Mom does NOT watch reality television. But last night, I heard her admitting to Dad that she watched clips from the second to the last episode of The Bachelor and she wanted to see the ending, because the Bachelor told TWO women he was in love with them.

What The Dog!

But anyway - I'll tell you how it came down when we caught Mom catching a clip of the ending. I'll just go visit GIFY and try and explain what happened to Mom in scenes from the show.

Because was I surprised.  You see, Mom doesn't watch stuff like that, she watches cars blow up and crime scenes and the most romantic thing she wants to see on TV is Zeva from NCIS beating up some thug.

My first thought was AGHHH! Who are you and what did you do with my Mom?"  Maybe there's a side to her I did know, and it was just unleashed by watching The Bachelor.

Who knew my Mom had a secret life.

Sure tried to explain to Dad that the Bachelor was a Hoosier so she wanted to see what all the fuss was about as she'd never watched the show before.

Don't pretend we didn't catch you watching it Mom.

Sure - you were just watching a clip while you unwound from your work day.

Which sometimes  is like this.

And I bet you got all sappy at the proposal to beautiful Lauren and all, even as you were so sad about JoJo losing.  

But she's awesome and left with some class so you're probably happy that she's going to be the next Bachelorette which you will probably also sneak a watch of the ending of, even though you pretend not to.

I'm glad THAT's  over and our lives around here can get back to normal and we can watch Animal Planet again.

But I want to know when The Bachelor - Doggie Edition is going to air.

    YIKWES.... couldn't stop to read Abby - flickery-pickeries give me the sickeries.... but sending love and huggies with some tale wags just the same!!! YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Omg. We watched the finale out of pure boredom.
    That show is so dumb. He was in love with two women. My ass....

    1. I was sort of hoping for a smackdown moment between the two finalists but it was pretty anti-climactic.

  3. Lady tried an episode of that show once, but couldn't do it:)
    Hope your mom enjoyed it.

    1. It was entertaining in a train wreck sort of way, but Dad had SO much fun teasing her when he caught her watching it.

  4. We didn't know piggies go swimming at the beach! Why are all those silly ladies swimming with them? It must be a confusing show. We're just going to wait for the doggie version.

  5. my mom persuaded my dad to watch our version of the bachelor ... and a weird thing happened... after 5 minutes they both agreed to punch that guy in his face if they ever would meet him once somewhere ... we never watched it again, we thought it is as funny as flavor of love at mtv but it was much more worse... (if that is possible lol)
