** The thought that our precious friends will become vicious hunters. The notion that animals will forget you and humanity in due time. The fact that the smaller and weaker pets, such as toy breeds, will survive along with some of the more poorly designed breeds.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Inspired by the book ''The World Without Us'' which, due to its success and also to perhaps because it was named one of ''Time'' Magazine's Books of the Year for 2007, suddenly made this subject very popular. The NationalGeographic Channel also had a [[DuelingShows very similar show]] at the same time called ''Aftermath: Population Zero''.

** To be fair, they did praise Lacy Dogs and German Shepherds (although they were fixed).

* NauseaFuel: "Last Supper" (Season 2, Episode 4) features a Fort Worth, Texas supermarket that was abandoned for several months in 1999 [[WayPastTheExpirationDate with all the food still inside it]], and goes into great detail about what happens when you leave an entire grocery store's worth of food sitting unattended in the summertime in Texas.[[note]]After complaints from neighbors over the smell, the supermarket was fumigated and stripped to the bare walls.[[/note]]

** Even some of the smaller dogs could survive, filling the ecological niche once held by foxes and weasels. Dachshunds in particular are very intelligent, highly adaptable, and extremely aggressive at need ([[AttackAnimal they were originally bred to]] ''hunt and kill badgers in their tunnels!'')

* TheyJustDidntCare: One episode goes on about how cats are natural born predators, and will thrive in a world without people because they'll revert to a predator existence. This same episode claims that dogs are screwed because they're too stupid and sheltered to survive. Miniature poodles and toy dogs, maybe, but anyone who owns a working or hunting breed knows that these dogs are highly intelligent and frequently capable of taking care of themselves if need be.

* IdiotPlot: The show essentially makes it clear that humanity ''literally'' disappears overnight, instantaneously without any actual method or cause beyond AWizardDidIt. Many of the show's points (accurate or not) are because of this otherwise impossible scenario, especially the TearJerker mentioned below. Especially important [[FridgeLogic is the problem of ALL of humanity dying without anything else on the planet being affected, despite the fact that humanity would be one of the most resiliant species on the planet in the face of catastrophes and disasters, including biological ones.]] Humanity's relative "immortality" is not our constructions, but our ability to survive and adapt, ''which is why we came to dominate the planet in the first place.'' Thus, anything that wipes out humanity would also wipe out a vast majority of life on Earth as well.
** The idea that most human achievement, with the exception of very sturdy and already long lasting buildings like the pyramids, will have desintegrated or be unrecognizable within a couple of thousand years, if not just a few hundred years.
