Vet Dr Frank Miller used to have a column in the San Francisco Chronicle in the 1970's. His book Wonderful World of Dogs is a compilation of the letters he received and his answers to them. I was leafing through and came across this one:
I've got a big problem. My wife loves our dogs, any one of them and we have a few, more than she does me. What can I do?"
Reply from Dr.Miller:
"Sorry, but you will have to turn elsewhere for advice. I'm only qualified to help dogs, and obviously they do not need my help."
