The 19 year old dog that Stan brings home does manage to make girls talk to Steve and he is quite pleased. However one night Roger breaks a botte in the kitchen causing Stan to think Osama Bin Laden is in the house and he accidently shoots Steve's dog. They burry it in the back yard where Steve tells his dad that the real reason he wanted it was to try and impress women. Stan offers to help and figures that women like guys with power and rigs the school election so that Steve is class president.
