... subtitled (by me) Don't Mess with Walter :no

That canine genius in his return engagement loves the low notes, predicts the weather with his fur, borrows Joe's quilt and likes to sleep with a southern exposure. Also since he "aint no puppy" , takes his evening constitutional in search of romance but encounters the same inept crooks who tried to rob him before. They think they have the drop on Walter, but he's the one taking them for a ride. :fasthorse

Meanwhile back at the ranch :ranch ...Hoss finds the ransom note and fears that Walter has been the victim of foul play, later he fears giving Obie the ransom note, Obie fears that Walter will find out "how little they asked for him."

The two would be rescuers set off to find Walter who, it should be obvious to Obie after all this time, needs NO rescuing. Instead Walter gives his captors the slip while Hoss and Obie get "hung up".

Later, man and mutt have a happy reunion and we learn the one flaw Walter possesses. He needs reading glasses. I hope they are prescription shades cos he is just too cool :beach

Sorry I am going overboard on the Walter stuff. Some of you may remember me talking about my Sally. She was a golden retriever but resembled Walter a bit. She was almost fifteen and I lost her just after Easter, just before her birthday. I miss her something awful and talking about Walter helps in some way. I better stop or I'll start bawling :sob Thanks for listening!!

Walter is one of my favorite BZ characters so you can imagine how happy I was when they brought him back. :dog4 He may not be the most energetic of Ponderosa guests but he certainly is a clever one. After all, Ben let him stay in the house.

I watched this episode last night on youtube, hard to believe but I haven't seen it in a while :yes Walter's still a caution.

This episode proved Obie had trouble with basic arithmetic so no wonder he depended on Walter so much. In the first scene Hoss is scolding him for not visiting his sister for so long and asks him how many years it has been.

Obie says that he last saw her in '43, so it's been 16 years. That would make the current year 1859, uh no. :no This episode took place after the Laura arc and the date on her husband's tombstone was clearly 1861. Laura and Adam were courting almost a year according to Triangle. In that episode Peggy said it had been almost a year since Adam gave her that pony Traveler.

So Obie, it's been almost twenty years since you saw your sister! No wonder you need Walter.

Those silly script writers! They must have needed Walter, also. That Walter was moving so quickly if you blink you miss him. My grand daughter said she wishes she had a dog like Walter.
