Lesson Introduction

Opie brings a little, hungry dog into the courthouse and wants to adopt him. After the dog gets Barney’s sandwich and Mr. Cookie Bar, then he runs away. Opie is sad until the little pup comes back . . . and this time he brings more with him! A State Investigator is coming, and Barney is afraid he will think they want extra funds to take care of the dogs. Barney and Andy try to find them new homes before he arrives.
