"Dog's Best Friend" is the second segment of the tenth episode of 101 Dalmatians: The Series. It aired on November 22, 1997.
Lucky gets a new friend called Blaze, who has just arrived on the farm, but after a while, Rolly becomes jealous of him.
- At one point, Anita mentions Richard III.
- Rolly thinks an anaconda to be a foreign car.
- When learning Kung Chu (likely based on the martial art Kung Fu), Blaze refers to Lucky as "Grasshopper". This may either be an homage to the '70s show Kung Fu or The Karate Kid films.
- The day after the Thunderbolt autograph incident, the exterior shot of the Dearly Farm barn seems to be from "Chow About That?", since Lucky, Cadpig, Rolly, Duchess and Princess can be seen with the catapult idea.
- Blaze mentions being up for the role of "Young Thunderbolt". This may be similar to a number of shows with "young" versions of film or show characters, such as "Young Indiana Jones", "Young Sherlock Holmes", or "Young Hercules".
- Rolly mentions Towser Hill, where he may wish to look for bones with Lucky.
