Mr. Finch is a model of kindness and generosity, too. His genuine affection for the dogs is an emotional high point. He gets food for Benji and always talks to the young man who delivers his groceries. In one touching scene, Finch puts food out for the dogs and waits to see if they'll come. Because they're trapped in a garbage can, Benji and Lizard Tongue can't make it. But Mr. Finch falls asleep in his chair on the porch waiting for them. He's saddened when he wakes at sunrise to discover that his new friends haven't come a callin' in the night.

Benji did not have any problems with his appetite or food aggression until after he started daycare. While the history is not completely clear, it appears that having a communal feeding bowl in a group of 20 or so dogs set the dogs up to challenge each other. Unfortunately, canine day care is not regulated in our state, and there are many places that allow reactive play to escalate to aggression. Many are also set up in ways that inadvertently provoke challenge for resources—like using communal food bowls—which can lead to resource guarding.

They both said they cant wait for him to try some!Benji developed allergies later in life, and it caused red/itchy skin, particularly under his armpits. His vet recommended we could try a prescription hypoallergenic dog food, but the thought of spending $35 for a weeks worth of food for the rest of his life is kinda daunting. Shoot, that’s probably more than I spend at the grocery store for a weeks worth of food. And you have to use it for 8 straight weeks to see if it’s effective, and in that time period Benji cannot have other treats, food scraps, etc.
