This episode is told in flashback, as Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) tries to cheer up a depressed radio caller by philosophizing over an event in his own experience. It seems that the Crane's quirky dog Eddie was also down in the dumps emotionally, causing no end of concern for Frasier and his dad, Martin (John Mahoney). The solution: Send Eddie to see a pet psychiatrist, Dr. Shaw (Zeljko Ivanek, of Oz fame). And the results? Well, the results are much better seen than described.
