Chesney's very upset and sets off to see Schmeichel at the vet's. Sally tells Frank that she should never have gone to John's funeral as it just made her angry. Frank's understanding and Sally's grateful to him.

Leanne overhears Russ telling Simon that his mum and dad are getting back together. Katy tells Owen that they've received an Eviction Notice on No.5 because they owe so much rent. Owen offers to lend her the money but Katy refuses knowing it would upset Chesney. The vet advises Chesney that the kindest thing to do is to put Schmeichel to sleep but Chesney refuses and takes him home.

Cheryl gets upset as she explains that she loves both Chris and Lloyd. Katy shows Chesney the Eviction Notice telling them their rent is in arrears.
