This Family is Going to the Dogs

Consider Marina Wolak and Buck, her one-year-old German shepherd. One day last week, she served him steamed broccoli for breakfast, raw ribs for a snack, and a grilled chicken breast and baked sweet potato for dinner. Her husband, Kirk, says he and their 10-year-old daughter got the chicken for dinner, but had no sides…

Making matters worse: Both Mr. Wolak and their daughter are allergic to the dog.

Her husband and daughter feel like they are just barking up the wrong tree and that really bites!
