Love Fluffy.... but not this much....

I swear I love my cat, but not this much...

Unable to come to terms with the death of their pet dog, a childless couple in southern India hanged themselves.
The bodies of 67-year-old retired soldier C.N. Madanraj and his wife, Tarabai, 63, were found 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.

You know how people say it's not a good thing to get really attached to things?...well I think that we have just been given a good example of why that is.

But that's a bit to the extreme I think. Kinda...like they were ocd with their dog...hmmmmm..
