    Bart finds an injured pigeon and nurses it back to health. He is then devastated when Santa's Little Helper eats it, and the family must once again make the decision of whether or not to give the dog away. The first half of this episode was great, but in the second half the quality went down. It was like, 'oh, how do we end this ep, hmm, let's throw something together with giving the dog away.' I can't help but think it could've been a lot better and funnier if Homer had actually turned it into a racing pigeon…

    Anyway, a mediocre episode, good sight gags but not a great storyline. Deciding whether to give SLH away has been done so many times (Bart's Dog Gets an F, The Canine Mutiny, Stop or my Dog will shoot, etc.) it's just lost its feeling. It was also kind of lame how Bart loved a bird more than his dog he had for 22 years. 6.5/10
