He is THE MAN! Walter is just too cool for school, :beach so laid back and a good judge of character! I admire the way he takes real good care of himself but never flinches from danger. Still, he's a peaceful sort who would never even bite a crook. He's so calm and easy going. He takes things in stride, even false imprisonment. He has all the qualities I looked for in a man. Too bad he was a canine :laughing

I loved that dog! I couldn't help but laugh when I saw it the first time, and still laugh when I watch it now, at how that dog could just lay there and do nothing! Absolutely nothing! The jailhouse scene at the end was my favorite, but all in all, was an excellent episode.

How did I miss Bessie Sue Hightower? For all the times other women have fallen short for our guys Bessie Sue could have handled being on a ranch. I know the episode really belonged to Walter but I just cant get over the scene where Joe and Adam meet Bessie Sue. When she leans into the guys it is just priceless. I would have loved to have seen her in more episodes. Imagine her filling in when Hop Sing goes to see his cousins.

Bessie Sue wasn't even in the scene with Hoss, but she still pops up in fan "who's the best girl for Hoss?" lists. I would have loved to see Hoss and Bessie Sue together!

I don't know about Hoss and Bessie Sue together seriously. Maybe as a crazy date, but not as a wife for Hoss. :no He needed a smaller woman who was a little more refined, but not snobby. She could still get down and dirty, but wasn't going to run around wearing overalls all the time. Just my opinion...

We could all use a dog like Walter! I can just see Bessie Sue as Adam and Joe's sister-in-law. They both seemed a bit afraid of her. The way she lugged those boards around and almost knocked into them was funny! She could repair all of the fencing easily.

Humor at it's best. Walter, though subtle in his movements managed to carry every scene he was in. Poor Hoss, I wouldn't want Bessie angry with me.

Hoss certainly had a good view of outside, didn't he? :grin :laughing
