Elly's attempt to convince Mike not to feed Farley table scraps result in yet another joke about how her cooking is inferior to dog food.

(Strip Number 747, Original Publication Date, 15 November 1984)

Panel 1: We continue things along with Mike telling MAAAAAA that Farley once again refuses to eat his kibble and wants people food instead.

Panel 2: Elly says he can't always eat what they eat all of the time or he will get spoiled.

Panel 3: Elly is gobsmacked when Michael says that he cannot believe anyone can get spoiled on the stuff Elly cooks.

Summary: While I do like the reminder that pets shouldn't be trained to expect table scraps that they cannot always digest properly, I could have done without another slam against Elly's cooking. I could also have done without the reminder that Lynn has no idea that people food makes dogs sick.
