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.

found - Thanks for the links. Yes, there are some shirts with all 6 pups, but it was more challenging to find than I anticipated.

I checked out the links you suggested:
link 1: This shirt actually has only 4 pups (not all 6). But, you are right. It does include Skye.
link 2: This is a St Patricks Day shirt. Not in season anymore.
link 3: While this one has all six dogs, personally, I was looking for a more gender neutral shirt.
link 4: This one actually has 7 pups (includes the new pup, Everest)
link 5: Yes, this one does have all 6 original dogs.
link 6: I couldn't find the shirt you were talking about using this link.

I'm not sure why Skye is left out. I would think that many kids would want a shirt with all 6 original dogs on it. But, it's possible that the shirts with all 6 dogs are not selling as well as the shirts with only some of the dogs. And maybe the shirts with the 5 male dogs are selling better than the shirts with all 6 original pups.

found - I figured out the link. I think it is a red long sleeve shirt? Yes, it does have all 6 pups and Ryder. Thanks for sharing.
