Dooley, what is it about me that makes you so passionate?
Well, it's not your looks, Lyman. I guess it's your job.
And knowing your methods of law enforcement, I don't suppose that you have a search warrant?
Dog ate it. You can hang around his tail for an hour.

Jerry Lee is played by Rando, not Jerry Lee, as credited at the end. See more »
As a young child, K-9 was one of my favourite films, and although my tastes have matured with time, this is still a very funny film, with one of the most underrated actors ever, James Belushi. Playing the superb Bill Murray deadpan style, but usually as a cop, rather than Murray's humorous loser roles, Belushi is a likeable dodgy cop. The end scene in the hospital is the best man and dog conversation ever, although Jerry Lee jumping in the poodle's car runs it pretty close.
My rating : 9 out of 10
