Boycie, Trigger and Del Sleeping Dogs Lie

Transmitted: 21.3.1985
Duration: 30 minutes
Viewing Figures: 18.7 million

In an attempt to earn an easy 60 a week, Del persuades Boycie and Marlene to entrust him with the care of their Great Dane puppy, Duke, while they are away on holiday.

Whilst out on a walk, Rodney notices that the dog is a bit sluggish, and they decide to take it to the vets. Del and Rodney think that the dog may have eaten some reheated pork leftovers for breakfast, and the vet quickly informs them that Duke has probably caught Salmonella.

It's only when they get home that they realise Albert has eaten the other half of the pork, and they quickly rush him to hospital.

When Albert's gets discharged from hospital a few days later, with a clean bill of health, Del boy discovers that Rodney has been giving Albert's sleeping pills to Duke, and the dog's vitamin supplements to Albert.
