McGee is bitten and wounds a German shepherd dog in self defense. The team tracked down a missing suspect: petty officer Kyle Hanson, the Pax River US Navy base's drugs enforcement unit dog handler. He was killed at least 36 hours earlier by his own dog, Butch; they find cash and cocaine. Jimmy Palmer's veterinary summer job now pays off. Abby sides unconditionally with the dog she re-baptizes Jethro. Desperate to prove that the 'cute puppy' is innocent she even 'kidnaps' him to trace a flea that might incriminate another dog, but he escapes on the base and digs up another dog's corps. There is also a Panamanian drug contact, Diego Galante. Grilling Hanson's five unit colleagues seems unproductive; then petty officer Pete Bidwell is found murdered inside a cargo plain, badly staged as a loading accident. Finally the dog has an interesting health crisis. Written by

When DiNozzo opens Abby's email, the summary screen lists the subject in all caps, but the opened message has the subject in mixed case. Additionally, the "From" space in the opened message is blank, instead of having Abby's email address and/or name. See more

Abby, that dog tasted my blood, and I think he *liked* it!
