Yes, it can be said that this episode describes the silly behavior of a rich woman who is possibly lonely and showers all her affection on her dog. Even after knowing that it must not be over fed she doesn’t stop as she is unable to leave her over affectionate approach towards feeding her dog. It was for Mr. Herriot who could see through the real story and treated Tricki right. Mrs Humphrey’s silly behavior can also be seen when the dog is sent to the hospital. She packed cushions, toys, coats, bowls etc. to be sent along and even after that keeps sending eggs and wine for it. It is not just being silly. Such attitude can cause harm to others as in this case it did to Tricki.
