Synopsis by Hal Erickson
When Little Ricky (Richard Keith) brings home a puppy, Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Ricky (Desi Arnaz) decide that the mutt cannot stay -- especially since their son has already turned their apartment into a menagerie with such pets as a frog, a lizard, and a turtle. Alas, both Lucy and Ricky fall in love with the puppy and can't bring themselves to evict it. Finally, landlord Fred Mertz (William Frawley) takes a hand in matters -- but even he is unable to throw the doggie out, especially upon learning that Little Ricky has named the puppy "Fred." Voice actress June Foray of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame provides the barks and yelps for the "guest dog."
