The Rat Dog is the sixth episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 6. It is the fifty-sixth episode overall.


Larry David offends a deaf woman because he thinks her miniature dog resembles a rat. When he wants to apologize to her, he is unable to do it over the phone because she is deaf. When he accidentally switches phones with Leon Black, Leon ends up calling the deaf woman's black husband, which leads him to believe that Larry is doing a racist impression of a black man.
