Tom and Pippa face an agonising decision, while Lynn makes some dramatic allegations against Fisher.
VET (DEBORAH KENNEDY)
Informed Tom and Pippa on their options for Eric the Dog.
> Eric the Dog (a stray taken in by Tom and Pippa in #7) is poisoned in this episode, later revealed to be the first act of the Summer Bay ‘Nutter’.
A vet calls over to check on the dog. She gives Tom and Pippa an option to either to take the dog to surgery or put it out of its misery. The chance of surviving the surgery is very slim and it will cost about $600. So Tom decides she’d better take it out of its misery.
Sally told Lynn that she heard Tom and Pippa say they couldn’t afford to do surgery on Eric. Lynn then blames Tom and Pippa for Eric’s death.
Frank is over at Alf’s house to help Roo study but he pays Steven to do the study so Frank and Roo can spend some time together!
Lynn barges into Fisher’s office and accuses him for poisoning Eric. He denies it and gets upset over such accusations.
Lynn packs a suitcase with clothes and leaves the Fletchers.
Ola Carlsson, 1999
