Beano works for doggie methane

When I was visiting Stu's household this last week, I dubbed his dog Sophie "The Methane Coyote." She was a time bomb of gastrointestinal terrorism.

In response to the new naming, Estu came up with this great graphic.

Trena Cardwell, of Chukarhill Kennels in Kittitas Washington is known as the bird dog trainer extrordinaire in the Farnham household. She has trained untold numbers of Estu and Colleen's dogs, always with fantastic results.

When Estu complained about the The Methane Coyote, Trena suggested dosing her with Beano before meals. Apparently, it works like a charm, and she gets to feel special because she gets something the other dogs don't get.

But if a single dose is missed -- soon after the meal it is missed *sorely.*

Enjoy the science of protecting yourself from your pets,

Sophie *always* feels special. Our giving her something the others do not get is mere acknowledgementthat we understand this fundamental truth.

This is a dog that subscribes to the "refrigerator door" theory of life: when she enters a room, the light goes on; when she leaves it the light goes out.
