CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson has one simple task: Watch an ambassador’s dog while the diplomat is conducting sensitive negotiations with an alien race. But you know dogs - always getting into something. And when this dog gets into something that could launch an alien civil war, Wilson has to find a way to solve the conflict, fast, or be the one in the Colonial Union’s doghouse.
"The Dog King" is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.
Listen to the complete edition of The Human Division, the fifth full-length book by John Scalzi in the Old Man's War universe.

My wife says she can read me like an open book. Though she regrets not being able to shut me up the same way. :)
(Continuing my on-going editorial from Eps 1-6.)
Harry is indeed one of my favs. But, then again, I grew up with him in the Old Man's War series.
But, as I alluded in my previous review (Ep 6) I'm struggling with not really finding myself caring as much for other characters who were newly introduced in this series. But that's not because they're not colorful and animated in their own right, rather I think the disjointedness of the serial format keeps me at arms length because our "revisit" time with these characters isn't as frequent a touchpoint as a novel would afford.
Harry, on the other hand... well, we know Harry already from his quirks as one of the original "Old Farts" in Old Man's War. Long live Harry. :)
