I loved this episode. Jamie's love for the dog was great, and there were a lot of fantastic moments throughout, both funny moments (such as when the dog follows Jamie in to church) and dramatic moments (especially during the dog trial.) I also enjoyed Jamie's interactions with Ben, Joe, Candy, and Hop Sing. Don Knight's character was likeable, too.

This is one of my favorite 'Jamie' episodes. I really wanted an Irish Setter after watching this. April was adorable.

Interesting note: There is a wanted posted that appears in this episode. On the poster is the name Bronco Layne from the TV western series, Bronco. This same poster appeared in Bonanza season 12's The Trouble With Trouble, but in that episode, it includes a picture of actor Ty Hardin as Bronco. Makes me think someone on the Bonanza set was a Bronco fan!

I am a tea drinker. My first beverage of the day (after the mandatory water for some meds) is tea. My last beverage of the night is decaf tea. So tscene was one I really liked. The caption below it is what Tracy included with the pic when she uploaded it.

Hop Sing rises early, ready to start his day in the kitchen. Jamie's dog, April, rushes to the kitchen, barking. Hop Sing begins to yell, and the commotion awakens Ben, Joe, and Jamie. They hurry to the kitchen in their night shirts, only to find Hop Sing muttering about the dog. Hop Sing announces, "Coffee not ready." Then he pours himself a cup from the pot, and adds, "Tea ready."

I love that scene! April sure did cause some trouble with her barking at everyone, like Joe coming home at night and Hop Sing! She was still a beautiful dog. :dog4
