Never thought that a lost dead dog would be funny.
3 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There has been some conflict between the Mayor's office and the police commissioner and Mike has thought of a way to smooth over the rough time. A decorated police dog named Bingo has just died and Mike will hold a memorial service for the fallen canine.

But when Mike sends Carter and Paul out to pick up the dead animal, they lose the casket when a cab ride goes bad. It seems that Paul and Carter insult the Cabbie and he puts them out. The two forget to get the casket out of the trunk and now the animal cannot be found. With the memorial scheduled in a few hours, Mike makes a decision that is not going to be favorable.

Another situation comedy that makes the show so enjoyable. With a finely written script and nice acting, this series captures the interest of the public. Good watch.
