As a puppy, Ralph was acquired by a cruel scientist who hoped to give the Dog the ability to mimic Earthling speech. The scientist had no idea that this distinctive German Shepherd possessed the brain power of a human with above-average intelligence, and was surprised to learn of Ralph's conversational abilities. Ralph eventually escaped from his captor, and desiring more from life than a Frisbee game, taught himself to type. Although he became a successful science fiction writer, he could not reap the benefits as he could not open a bank account or cash his checks. His life took a new turn when he teamed up with a mute bum and together they began roaming bars with a talking Dog scam. Their secret was discovered in Callahan's Place and the rest is history. Today, Ralph hosts a successful radio talk show.
