Guess Who's a Cheerleader


Avery's First Crush

Crimes of the Art is the fourteenth episode in Season 1 of Dog with a Blog. This episode scored 3.5 million viewers.


When Tyler enters the same art competition as Avery, Avery accuses him of only doing it for the money. However, when Avery accidentally breaks Tyler’s sculpture, she realizes just how much his work really means to him. Tyler breaks Avery's painting in turn.

Meanwhile, Ellen is upset because she believes Bennett doesn't think she is pretty, and is spending more time with Karl so her beauty can be "appreciated". Stan helps out with Chloe's piece in the same art competition Tyler and Avery are in.

Guest Cast


  • Stan coming to Chloe and asking with a high-pitched voice "Hey Chloe, what'cha doin'?" is a nod to a running gag from Phineas and Ferb in which Isabella walks over to Phineas and Ferb and asks: "Hey Phineas, what'cha doin'?"
  • Chloe and Stan's appearance as they stand behind a frame resembles the painting American Gothic by Grant Wood.
  • Stan saying to Avery "You did good kid" after she confesses to Tyler about destroying his sculpture is a reference to Mickey's line from Rocky 3.


  • Stan: Hey Avery, how's it going? Oh, you're working on your painting for the Youth Art Competition?
  • Avery: Yep, and this is the most exciting part of the process. The canvas is blank, all things are possible.
  • Stan: You have no idea what you're going to paint, do you?
  • Avery: Not a clue.


  • Avery: You can't just slap stuff together and call it art!
  • Tyler: Can and did.
