Editor’s Note: Please welcome new contributor Katherine to the blog. Katherine wrote and managed the dog blog phetched, and we’re so excited to have her as part of the Dog Milk team.

My husband and I have little voices we?ve developed for our dogs Mingus and Dottie. It’s how our dogs are able to “talk” to themselves, to each other, and to us. I know I can admit that here without judgment as I?m pretty sure around 94.7% of y?all do the exact same thing. Am I right?

Wilfred, a new comedy series premiering on FX tonight, explores what can happen when we allow our canine-inspired imaginings to run wild.

In the live-action comedy, Elijah Wood (ha cha cha!) plays Ryan, a struggling, suicidal young man who befriends Wilfred, his neighbor?s dog. The schtick? Where the rest of the world sees Wilfred as a dog, Ryan — and the viewer — sees a crude, brash Australian man (co-creator Jason Gunn) in a dog suit. RECIPE FOR COMEDY, people. Madcap adventures and hilarity ensue, and with Wilfred?s guidance, Ryan is able to conquer his fears and embrace life, blah blah blah. Whatever. It?s Elijah Wood. DVR is set.

Wilfred airs tonight at 10 PM. You can learn more about the show and check out exclusive videos here.

Katherine, who lives with her family in the mountains of North Carolina, curated her own dog blog for a couple of years before joining the Design Milk team. If she ever won the lottery, she’d most definitely spend it all on live music & airfare to New York City. Other interests include craft beer, banjos, books, & BBQ.
