You think that one dog is just as good as another just like one husband is just as good as another.

Earl Holliman and Jacqueline Scott star in this Disney TV film as a fairly new married
couple.. Scott has brought her two children Ron Howard and Pamela Ferdin
to the marriage and Holliman has stepfather issues with both.
A stray and injured German Shepherd that Howard names Smoke has arrived
on the sheep ranch they live on and Holliman doesn't want a strange dog on
the place, It's the basis for the conflict between Howard and Holliman.
Smoke is a decent enough bog and dog story and the players do well enough
by their roles.
