Spike and Jet's new bounty is a man named Abdul Hakim, who is wanted for stealing a briefcase with a lab subject in it. He won't be easy to spot, especially when he attempts to hide his identity. When a thief steals Hakim's briefcase, he discovers it's a Welsh Corgi dog that's only worth a pocket full of Woolongs. The thief tries to sell the dog to a pet shop, but can't get a good bargain on the K-9. Now Spike must find Hakim and the dog, but the question remains: what is special about this Welsh Corgi?

Good dog
23 May 2006 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Meet Ein, a normal Welsh Corgi. Well, he SEEMS normal; the pet shop owner sees nothing extraordinary about him. So why is the wanted criminal Abdul Hakim so desperate to get him back after he runs off? Ein is the first new member of the Bebop's crew, to be joined later by Faye Valentine and Radical Edward.

He's a genius of a dog, it turns out, and we follow the chase to claim him in this episode.

Like the Asteroid Blues, it's great entertainment, if not quite as compelling. Meeting Ein, and some humorous moments involving Spike, the dog, and the chase make this a worthy episode.
