Storyline

As if Lois Lane didn't make enough of a nuisance of herself now living at the Kent farm, she brings in Einstein, a golden retriever, who is the latest victim to be hit by her car, and she meanly calls him 'Clarky', while Clark, kind as ever, hopes to keep him as a pet if the owner isn't found, which his parents hope. Clark soon finds out it's a surviving dog of an experiment to give canines superpowers with daily injections of steroids mixed with meteorite fragments (kryptonite) produced at LuthorCorp, which Lex insists to Clark that the project was abandoned after animal activist protests, thinking they were all put down. Only later Clark finds out, the hard way, the dog and a Rothweiler are abused by evil Josh Greenfield and his kid brother Zack, who run the Smalville animal shelter and abuse dog whistles to control the super-dogs as weapons for robberies. Meanwhile, Jason and his secretive and manipulative mother, Genevieve, are revealed to know more about Lex and his apparently ... Written by KGF Vissers

Clark gets a Super Dog
16 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even a hero needs the man's best friend, as seen in this fun "Smallville" episode.

Some dogs have escaped a LuthorCorp laboratory due to the amazing strength that they display as a result of tests involving what kryptonite will do to species besides humans. Lois hits one of these escaped dogs and takes it to the Kent farm. Clark becomes attached to the dog and wants to name him 'Krypto.' Lois, on the other hand, would like to name him 'Clarkie.' Additionally, we see that Lionel has previously known the schematic Genevieve Teague, who has arrived in Smallville for mysterious reasons.

This episode is great because of the 'superdog' angle that it takes, as derived from the superdog Krypto from the Silver Age Superman comics. It also features some funny dialog between Clark and Lois, and continues the evolving storyline of the Teague connection to Lana and the three elements.
