    Just 1 sentence about "let"

    Hey,
    I wanted to write a similar sentence.
    Is this sentence okay?
    No one lets my dog famish!

    No gerund after let?

    P.S. I'm not sure if the famish comes right after the lets...

    Cheers!

    We don't use "famish" in that way, at least not in modern English, we use "starve".
