    I suppose this means Farley has been getting a lot of leftover Elly food for his dinner, and John knows it. We have seen enough Elly food disasters in the comic strip for me to feel sorry for poor Farley. Dogs are notorious for eating anything. A cat probably would have had the good sense to turn down Elly dinner scraps and avoid the garbage gastritis.

    You said it, Elly, not him.

    That was the point — it was meant as a first strike!

    The first point, in the first frame, is that Farley got loose, and probably into other folks garbage, not Elly’s leftovers.

    The smile says it all.

    I don’t see what John has to smile about. For all we know, Farley ate John’s cooked beans while Elly was away and that’s what made him sick. They sure made Mike green!

    Elly is prepared for him!

    Sadly, I once had a dog who got loose for a day and died from his garbage gastritis.

    Ellie walked right into that one. Nothing like cutting your own throat.

    I knew when my dog had the GG. I took her right to the vets and they just made her barf it all up. I picked her up later. She was miserable, but survived. If I hadn’t made the trip, the vet said she would probably have died from pancreatic complications.

    Amen to that.

    The last panel looks like John is about to bust a gut trying not to laugh.

    Another reason not to feed people food to the dog, okay?

    She didn’t walk right into anything. She knows exactly what her husband is going to say. She knows that his filter is faulty through experience.
