#3 has bad wording. " Daughter named Joanne," leads to one answer and "Nose twitching " suggests another.

In real life, he went suddenly to his Happy Hunting Ground during a potty break during the first season. The trainer brought in a ringer but he was outed when the dog didn't know how to act. This was during the episode that was centered on the dog, so they had to nail his collar (or something) to the floor. Afterwords, he was "written out." But his dog house remained, it hid something electrical. Fluffy the cat escaped during the wedding reception, remember that Disney-style romp? He never was seen again.
