Where Are They Now? The Cast of “Dog with a Blog” March 17, 2020Leave a comment

"Dog with a Blog" aired for three seasons on Disney Channel from 2012 to 2015. It followed the blended Jennings-James family, who had a talking dog named Stan, who would blog about his day-to-day life. The show was a quirky, light-hearted sitcom that lasted 69 episodes. But, with the show having ended five years ago in September, where is the cast now?
