One thing Ryan is sure of is that he wants a dog. But, can he handle the responsibility and is this the right time? Ryan brings up the familiar subject of owning a dog to his mom, Gretchen. Though she wants a dog as well, getting one doesn’t seem feasible for the busy Sheckler family who couldn’t even keep a fish alive. Set on proving himself a worthy dog owner, Ryan borrows Tony’s dog, Kea. He gets a litany of instructions that cover the excitable dog’s care from tip of the nose to the tip of her tail. Hearing all of this is a little too much for Ryan.
