Carol, Alice and the doctor surmise that Jan has probably developed an allergy to something. After checking many of the regular causes of allergies such as pollen, they end up believing that Jan is allergic to a person, namely Mike, as Jan starts sneezing as soon as he comes home. Their concern about this revelation is bittersweet when Jan continues to sneeze even when Mike isn't around, but does so when Tiger is, leading to the thought that he is the cause of her allergic reaction. They know that they have to get rid of Tiger for Jan's sake, news which will probably hit the boys the hardest as they raised Tiger from a pup.

Jan is allergic to something.
21 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Lead in this episode: Jan When Jan begins to sneeze, it is assumed that she has a cold. She is kept home from school. It soon becomes evident that Jan is allergic to something. It is first assumed that she was allergic to Mike, but this is silly of course.

Soon however, Tiger becomes the main suspect. Tiger is given several baths by different members of the family without checking with each other. The Boys give him one, then the girls give him one. Then Carol & Alice give him one. Oh, and don't forget-Mike also gives him one! I counted four baths! Tiger is one clean dog! It appears that none of this has helped-so They may have to get rid of tiger after all? Is it tiger? Or is it something else? Watch and find out.
