Cole Sprouse may have already been off the Disney Channel when the series Dog with a Blog first started up back in 2012, but that doesn't mean he didn't keep up with the shows that were airing on his former network! In fact, even five years later, the Suite Life and Riverdale star has some notes about what would have made the fan-beloved, thrice Emmy-nominated, all-around quality program even better.
The actor tweeted that instead of Stan the spotted, talking husky mix, the show should have considered casting a pitbull to play the canine blogger role.
Woulda done great things for representation if the dog with a blog was a pitbull. Smfh— Cole M. Sprouse (@colesprouse) May 26, 2017

Okay, Cole's got jokes.
Actress G. Hannelius, who played Avery on the series, retweeted Cole's tweet – so she either found it funny or is totally down for having a pitbull remake of the series.
In all seriousness, the pitbull breed does suffer a stigma as being dangerous and unsafe for families, so a family-friendly series casting a loving pit in the lead would do wonders for representation, just as Cole suggested.
But in absolutely zero seriousness, several incredibly quick Photoshoppers also created/unearthed memes casting Pitbull the singer in the role, and tweeted them at Cole.
