I have been watching the Steed/Gale episodes for many weeks now. I've noticed that in about 3 episodes so far, Steed has a different dog in his apartment as his pet. He acts affectionately toward it, as if they have been companions for a while. Was it just a little joke the people behind the scenes were playing? Was this ever explained?

One of the dogs was killed in an accident on the London Underground sadly. So that necessitated a replacement.

And then in the Peel remake of Death of a Great Dane Steed announces:
“Mrs. Peel, I am an Englishman and therefore a dog lover, but I prefer not to have dogs either in my domain or upon my necktie.”

Did you watch The Big Thinker,The White Dwarf, Man in the Mirror or Conspiracy of Silence? Then it has to be Sheba.
She was the dog of Mr. Macnee's second wife and obviously he like the pet very much ( and vis versa).

Yeah, I was never very keen on that line due to the lack of continuity.

The Great Dane dog was meant to appear in A Funny Thing Happened but Clemens cut it out.
