Show 8: Doggie Duties

Watch this episode

Ruff won a golden Blobby award but it was too big and heavy to keep it anywhere in the doghouse. He tried putting it the bathroom on a shelf above the toilet but it fell and broke the toilet! Ruff refused to use Blossom's litter box, or go outside, but he really had to pee. What to do?

He sent Liza and Sterling out to be dog butlers for a day and learn what it takes to care for a canine. With some help from their parents, they first had to walk a whole pack of dogs through an obstacle course. Next they cleaned an entire yard using pooper-scoopers. And finally, they muddied up some fluffy white dogs and washed them – good as new!

Meanwhile, Isaac and Bethany went to NASA to learn how they turn astronaut urine into drinking water on the International Space Station. NASA had a fancy filtration system but the FETCHers had to make their own out of household materials. Their filter didn't clean the water very well but it was a valiant effort. Then they did some exercise to test out NASA's sweat collecting device. At the end, they were rewarded by getting to drink some of NASA's recycled water!

Talia and Brian, back at Studio G, competed in the Halftime Quiz Show and answered only half of the questions correctly, for a mediocre 25 points.

Once everyone returned to the Studio, Ruff handed out points in the Triumph Tally:

Liza scored:

  • 15 points: for picking up poop

Sterling scored:

  • 20 points: for completing the obstacle course with speed and agility

Liza and Sterling each scored:

  • 60 points: for taking good care of Ruff's friends

Bethany and Isaac scored:

  • 75 points: for their commitment to the scientific process, and for drinking recycled astronaut urine

BUT: "Is that all the points a dog can give?"

Isaac earned 10 big bonus points for his knowledge of the water cycle, giving him a total of 85 points! His prize: A collar with bag-carrier and personalized tag for his own dog!
