For a while, Big Boo has a dog in prison. Many US prisons have programs that allow inmates to foster and train dogs for discrete time periods. These programs have several benefits for both the inmates and the dogs. They help alleviate animal shelter overcrowding, reduce the number of dogs that have to be euthanized. They provide a basic level of training and socialization for the dogs, preparing them to become pets or to continue training to become assistance dogs. The programs also provide training for potential post-incarceration jobs in animal services fields, companionship, and therapeutic and mental health benefits. See more
The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men
without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons. See more
