Dog Day After New Year is the tenth episode of the sixth season and the 128th episode of Party of Five. It originally aired on January 11, 2000.


Bailey goes to a wedding with Holly and all her relatives think they're married. Julia's new editor hasn't answered her about her book, so she tries to find her and not just sit and wait. When she finds her, she tells Julia that another book with the same story of hers has been published, so her book won't be published anymore. Thurber, the family bulldog, is sick. Claudia takes him to the veterinary. Charlie and Kirsten are in a double date with Daphne. Charlie quits his job after his boss says 'no' to his projects, but when they talk, he gets back. Bailey and Claudia decide to put Thurber to sleep due to his old age and ill health, and the whole family spread his ashes in the park, saying goodbye for the last time to the long-time friend.
