Episode Guide

A New Baby?


Avery's Wild Party

Stan Talks to Gran is the nineteenth episode in Season 1 of Dog With a Blog. This episode scored 2.3 million viewers.


Bennett and Ellen go on vacation and leave the kids with Bennett's mother. When Grandma James picks up Stan's worn-out chew toy and threatens to throw it out, Stan defends him in a panic, causing Grandma to faint. When she wakes up, she is stunned by Stan talking and starts to believe she is crazy and her subconscious is talking to her through a dog. During a conversation with Stan on the patio, she realizes that while she thinks that her relationship with the kids is strong, and really isn't and that they don't enjoy her company. As a result, she gives gifts to the kids. While Tyler and Chloe are happy, Avery feels uncomfortable accepting the gifts and she tells Grandma the truth about Stan and his ability. Grandma, however, says their secret is safe with her.
