Lamont is Old Mother Hubbard's pet dog seen in a Sesame Street News Flash from season five.

In the segment, Lamont barks for his supper, hungering for a bone, but has none because (just as the nursery rhyme predicts) the cupboard is bare. Mother Hubbard gets her rhymes confused and brings her dog a stone, and then a throne. When he's brought a phone, he uses it to dial a call. The dog breaks character (now talking with an English accent), orders a meal delivery from Wong's Chinese Restaurant, and even invites Kermit to join them.
