Dear Liza,

Grandpa Nelson visits his favorite lunch place, Zach’s Hot Dog Shack, a few times a week. It is about a mile walk away, has great french fries, and everyone there is friendly. They also have a ping pong table and a corn hole game.

Sometimes I go along, too. I like the Chicago dog, and now that I am limiting my meat intake, I have all the spicy goodness on a soy based dog. Very tasty!

And there is Zach’s pet Corgi, Riley. She is a delightful dog. She is friendly, hardly ever barks, and has a sweet, subtle way of letting you know she likes french fries.

In fact, she likes them so much that she is getting a bit chunky, even for a Corgi. Since Zach is a conscientious owner, he has decided to help her stay healthy by putting her on a one-french fry-per customer diet. Grandpa Nelson and I do our part to keep Riley well. We eat all the fries ourselves!

So far, it is up to the customers to limit Riley’s intake, because she has no self control and can’t count very well. I hope the other customers help too, because I would like to enjoy Riley’s company for many years to come.
