Grieving couple commits suicide after dog dies
HYDERABAD, India (Reuters) - Unable to come to terms with the death of their pet dog, an elderly couple in southern India committed suicide by hanging themselves, police said on Monday*
Damn. Look people, I love my dog Thor too. The sunuvabitch has got to be cutest thing this side of, well, me. And yes, I'm a total pet parent. I have purchased at least three articles of doggie clothing for him. And a bumblbee Halloween costume. The day he passes, I'm sure that will be a very sad day. I'm sure everyone in my household will shed a tear.
But suicide? Ummmmmm, not so much. I may get a little choked up for a couple of days, but you know what? I'll probably be down at the local pet shop looking for a new Shih-Tzu. That's what. Or getting to know any of the other pups we would have studded (?) him out for in previous years.
