ABC’s new series Downward Dog is the latest entry in a long line of talking animal television shows. Downward Dog follows Nan (played by Allison Tolman) and her attempt to navigate her relationship with the titular dog and life partner Martin (played by Ned). While on the press tour for the show, Tolman and Ned were kind enough to spend some time with us, and we were just excited to have a dog in the office.

Downward Dog premieres May 17 at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
