MY FAVORITE MARTIAN: The Matchmakers

Starring Ray Walston, Bill Bixby
Guest Stars:  Ann Marshall, Laura Shelton, Linden Chiles
Directed by Sidney Miller
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

While taking care of his boss' listless dog, Tim discovers from Martin that the canine is in love with the pooch next door, and Tim tries to bring them together by charming her attractive owner.

A rather silly outing, but the well-trained canines cast in the episode help sell it, and Walston's scenes trying to seriously communicate with the animals are priceless.  There's one sequence that's a little too derivative of 101 Dalmatians but it didn't bother me too much, and the plotline did fit in rather well with the series' quirky humor.
