Oh, please, cats would hold you hostage for two weeks before they ate you, just so you could take care of them longer.

I'm sorry, but that headline is just really funny.

I'm sure the dog didn't kill the guy, it probably just ate him because he died and was unable to feed it.

"Burhart's family said he got Buddy about six months ago for companionship. Despite what happened, nobody seems to blame the dog. Burhart's brothers are now taking care of Buddy and said they are sure that the dog did not kill him.

An autopsy is being performed on the body to determine how Burhart died."


I'd think that would be, um, inconclusive at best, considering the dog's most recent meal plan. ;)

That was a good movie yo.

Isn't it a bad idea to take in a dog that's eaten human flesh though? Like once they have a taste for it, you'll never be safe?

You know that funny look your dog gives you when you forget to feed it?

Now I have an idea what the dog is thinking.

Lyrics from "Marie Provost" by Nick Lowe, recorded somewhere in the late 70's


Mary Provost did not look her best
the day the cops bust into her lonely nest
in the cheap hotel up on Hollywood West
July 29

She´d been lying there for two or three weeks
the neighbours said they never heard a squeak
for hungry eyes that could not speak
said even little doggies have got to eat

She was a winner
that became the doggies dinner
she never meant that much to me
oh ,poor Mary

Mary Provost was a movie queen
mysterious angel of the silent screen
and run like the wind the nation´s young men steam
when Mary crossed the silent screen

Oh ,she came out west from New York
but when the talkies came Mary just couldn´t cope
her pubric said Mary take a walk
all the way back to New York

She was a winner
that became the doggies dinner
she never meant that much to me
but now I see ,poor Mary

Those twin balms didn´t help her sleep
as her nights grew long and her days grew bleak
it´s all downhill once you´ve passed your peak
Mary got ready for that last big sleep

The cops came in and they looked around
throwing up everywhere over what they found
the handywork of Mary´s little dachshund
that hungry little dachshund

She was a winner
that became the doggies dinner
she never meant that much to me
oh ,poor Mary

Poor Mary
poor Mary
poor ,poor Mary
poor Mary
poor Mary .......

Exactly.

What probably happened is that the old man died. After a week or so the dog was starving, and the man was dead so he didn't recognize him anymore anyway, so he started to eat him. I doubt the dog up and killed him outright.

If the man died first and then the dog ate his remains, then the dog acted in self-defense (against starvation because the man couldn't feed the dog if he's dead)

Regardless, my condolences for the family of the man.
