Where's Skye?

Uploaded: Apr 25, 2016

If you have young kids, you may know about Paw Patrol. A TV show about rescue dogs who work together to help out whenever there is trouble in Adventure Bay.

Our kids enjoy watching the show, so I looked into buying them Paw Patrol tshirts.

Our son had one request, a shirt with all six of the original Paw Patrol dogs on it. Easy, right? Who knew a shirt like that would be difficult to find!

As expected, some Paw Patrol t-shirts have only one or a few of the original pups. But there are others that, at first glance, look like they have the entire original Paw Patrol (like these: 1, 2, 3, 4). But are actually missing Skye, a key member (she is in every episode) and the only female pup from the original Paw Patrol.

Our son noticed the problem almost immediately. As I continued searching, I kept finding t-shirts with the same issue. The shirts only had five of the original six pups. And the missing pup was always Skye.

Our son thought it was ridiculous to exclude Skye from some of the t-shirts. Why exclude the girl dog? He stood by his decision for a shirt with all six pups.

While I was able to find a handful of shirts with all six dogs like this one, it wasn't nearly as easy as I expected. And the choices seem to be quite limited. I haven't yet found a shirt with all six of the original pups that actually interests our son.

We haven't bought a Paw Patrol t-shirt yet, but I enjoyed chatting with our son about why Skye, the female dog, might have been excluded and whether he thinks kids would like to wear those shirts.
