    Default Grieving couple commits suicide after dog dies

    Grieving couple commits suicide after dog dies - Yahoo! News

    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.
    The bodies of 67-year-old retired soldier C.N. Madanraj and his wife, Tarabai, 63, were found on Sunday in their home in a suburb of Hyderabad.
    Police said the childless couple had held a burial ceremony for their dog of 13 years, called "Puppy," and hosted a feast for friends before hanging themselves in their bedroom.
    "The couple described the grief over their pet dog in the suicide note they left on March 29," said police inspector V. Anantaiah.

    I love my dog with all my heart and he is my bestest friend in the entire world, but I doubt I will go to such extremes when he passes away.

    Sadly, a year ago, a couple here where I lived, did themselves in, and took the poor dog with them.

    Ok, I like Fido as much as the next person (although I'm really a cat kind of gal) but isn't this just a little bit extreme?

    That's sad, I sometimes think about when Bella will pass away. If I am feeling low I feel like killing myself when she dies, when I feel OK I think about how I have given her my heart and a wonderful life, and will try to think of the good times.

    I think that killing yourself because a person you love dies is extreme,too.

    Wow, that's pretty out there, so sad for them.

    On a creepy coincidental note, my dog is named "Puppy" too.
