You had a good run, Dog!
After eight addicting seasons, A&E has decided to pull the plug on the hit reality show Dog The Bounty Hunter.

Or at least a year. LOLz!

Reality television comes in all forms these days, but Intervention's powerful peek at the effects of a drug addiction never ceases to remind us why we shouldn't do drugs in the first place.
This week was no exception as the most recent episode profiled a young mother named Tiffany whose meth addiction causes all sorts of outlandish behavior, especially denial. Lots and LOTS of denial!
Watch the preview from Monday night's episode and be thankful you're worst habit is biting your finger nails.
