Storyline

Archie goes to war with Barney Hefner over the issue of his misbehaving dog. What sparks the squabble is that when the dog defecates on his lawn, he is proud to take it and dump it on Hefner's porch. Leaving for work, however, Archie backs up the cab and accidentally runs over the dog, not killing it but injuring it. Written by Jerry Roberts <armchair-cinema@hotmail.com>

Season 7 ends with a dog story
20 March 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Barney Hefner's dog is driving Archie crazy.

The finale to Season 7 avoids all serious and controversial issues just goes for laughs about a dog. It starts off OK, some of it is pretty funny with Archie doing another "fake suicide" during one of Edith's long winded stories and Barney's dog making a deposit on Archie's lawn. The jokes wear thin by the end, this could have been an episode on any sitcom even going back to the 1960s.
