Larry - German shepherd featured
episode No. 9 "The Unwelcome House Guest" on the classic sitcom THE
DICK VAN DYKE SHOW/CBS/1961-66.
Laura, Richie, Rob Petrie and Larry in
Larry belonged to comedy writer, Maurice "Buddy" Sorrell
(Morey Amsterdam). Once Buddy needed to find a dog sitter and so he
left Larry with his friend and coworker Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke).
The dog so frightened Rob's little boy, Richie (Larry Mathews) that
he cried "Don't let him eat me!" He then climbed inside a kitchen
cabinet and closed the door. When Richie discovered Larry sleeping
in his bed the following morning, he soon realized the dog was
really a pussy cat.
