In today's strip, the vet tells Elly that Farley has garbage gastritis; this makes her head John off at the pass before he can comment on her indigestible slop.

(Strip Number 469. Original Publication Date, 19 September 1983)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching a concerned-looking Elly on the phone. After responding "Really?" to the other party, she tells the person she's talking to that Farley did get loose the other day.

Panel 2: After hanging up the phone, Elly tells the family that that was the vet. It appears that Farley is going to be okay after all; he'd just eaten something that disagreed with him.

Panel 3: She says that there's even a name for it: 'garbage gastritis'.

Panel 4: She then makes a point of telling John that she doesn't want him making any smart remarks about her cooking.

Summary: We can expect to see a Lynnsight that talks about how helpful Beth was in the making of this exercise in pandering to pet owners. We can also expect to see letters that condemn John for giving heartburn fuel its right name.
