When Opie finds a stray dog, he takes it to the courthouse. They decide to feed the animal and it particularly likes Barney's lunch. Andy gives Opie permission to keep the dog but it escapes and returns to the courthouse with some of its friends. Barney is concerned with all of the animals being there since a State inspector is coming to town to check out the jail facilities and decide on their request for funding. Every time they get rid of the animals however, they seem to return in even greater numbers. Sure enough, the courthouse is full of animals when the inspector calls in which, as it turns out, is a pretty good thing. Written by
