Rob, Buddy and Sally have an unusual challenge in writing this week's script. The show's guest is a not a comedienne but a dramatic actress, and one that is not human but canine, namely a dog named Pally. They are having problems coming up with a suitable idea for a sketch. Rob thinks he's figured out an angle, one that has been done before but probably not in canine form. As Pally is considered a beautiful and intelligent dog, she would be Eliza Doolittle in their version of Pygmalion. To pull the skit off, they would have to find the ugliest, stupidest dog in the world as a pre-transformation stand-in, which Rob believes he's found at the dog pound. They nickname their ugly dog Horrible. The next day, there is a slight change in plans when Pally is no longer scheduled to appear on the show. What Rob didn't figure is that Horrible now has to be returned to the pound, which is more difficult than he imagined it would be to do despite Horrible being an ugly, smelly dog with bad breath,...

Why not? It was great with pigs.
