Kinda hard to shoot yourself dead first, shoot the dog dead second?
 
2013-02-19 01:03:20 PM
Maybe the dog shot her and then committed suicide.
 
2013-02-19 01:05:48 PM
They might have been emphasizing the "why shoot the dog at all" aspect, rather than the order.

/I defended Fox News. I need a shower.
 
2013-02-19 01:12:25 PM
Because Mindy owed a lot of money to Jabba?

/I defended Fox News. I need a shower.


Which is what I assumed. But then I figured why would there be an article about it? Seems the "why" of a country singer shooting her dog is self-explanatory.

"This was at least her third attempt [at suicide]," said the insider. "She is finally at peace."

Third times the charm?

"Mindy really loved her dog and that would not have been an act of malice at all," the pal insisted. "It would have been more of a case where she just didn't want to leave the dog alone."

She probably thought she and the dog would get into heaven together like some Earl Hamner Jr. written episode of Twilight Zone.

2013-02-19 01:23:32 PM
she was too sad and depressed to let the dog continue to live his happy life?
 
2013-02-19 01:24:18 PM
She didn't commit suicide, she was broke and out of dog food and didn't want the poor pup to go hungry.

Well according to Christian beliefs she's burning in Hell right now for all eternity. Nighty night.

2013-02-19 01:35:45 PM
"A true suicide is a paced, disciplined certainty. People pontificate, "Suicide is selfishness." Career churchmen like Pater go a step further and call in a cowardly assault on the living. Oafs argue this specious line for varying reason: to evade fingers of blame, to impress one's audience with one's mental fiber, to vent anger, or just because one lacks the necessary suffering to sympathize. Cowardice is nothing to do with it - suicide takes considerable courage. Japanese have the right idea. No, what's selfish is to demand another to endure an intolerable existence, just to spare families, friends, and enemies a bit of soul-searching. The only selfishness lies in ruining strangers' days by forcing 'em to witness a grotesqueness."

Great Janitor: Came here for the Country Music song lyric reference.  Laughing thanks to the Cyanide & Happiness comics.


The first song that came to mind -

Crazy, I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
I knew you'd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday you'd leave me for somebody new
Worry, why do I let myself worry?
Wond'ring what in the world did I do?
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you.

Didn't wanna leave the dog alone huh? Bullshiat. I had to shoot one of my dogs, and it was the hardest thing i have ever had to do. I think it was more "her spirit will be with me" than she didnt want the dog to be alone, as SOMEONE would have taken it. Thank god her kids werent there, she would have offed them too.

Probably just perfecting her aim.  It's a tough decision to take your own life and that tends to cause one to shake a bit.  Seems she was a trooper though and got through it with flying colors.  Good for her.

2013-02-19 03:03:07 PM
While I realize she has a history of drug abuse, I can't help but think she also suffered from some severe emotional problem, such as bipolar disorder that was not being successfully treated...not that this is surprising considering it's Arkansas where you can get a script pretty easily, but finding an actual, legitimate psychologist that can and will do more than just throw pills at a mental illness is damn near impossible.  It's too bad that rather than releasing her from the final rehab stay that she wasn't sent to the state mental facility in Little Rock for some observation and therapy.

She had to fire it at least once - she didn't want the noise to startle her and ruin her aim - and why waste a good round?

I'm thinking that having them taken away is what set her off to begin with. Could be wrong, however.

Nor do I think her kids are feeling lucky at the moment, but whatever.

Hard for you maybe.  Like Mindy, I grew up on a farm where death, probably more so than life, was part of the daily routine.  Some animal was either too sick to go on, or more often, we had too many already.  I remember standing behind the barn cat with a hammer as she gave birth.  Then one of our mules got tangled up in some barbed wire and all I had was a cattle prod.  It took forever and stunk like all get out.  For my birthday one year, all of our chickens came down with some sort of avian flu.  My back hurt from lugging around the weed whacker all day.  Was it fun?  At first.  But then it was just work.  That's farm living, I suppose.

I've never been happier than the day after my folks passed away in their sleep and I was free from that griding existence.  I herded all the horses and goats and pigs and everything else into the huge aluminum equipment barn and chained the doors.  They said you could see the smoke and hear the animals all the way in town.  I guess you get a little callous living around animals like that, but somebody's got to do it.

The day the cops bust into her loneiy nest
In the cheap hotel up
on Hollywood West July 29
She'd been lyin' there
for two or three weeks
The neighbors said
they never heard a squeak
For hungry eyes that couid not speak
Said even little doggie's have got to eat

She was winner
The became the doggie's dinner
She never meant that much to me
(But now I see) Oh poor Mary

I wonder if her kids are torn between the fact that she apparently loved the dog enough to want to take it with her but not her kids, and the fact that if she'd been just a tiny more imbalanced and/or loving, they might be dead right now.

McCready was then committed to a rehabilitation facility for mental health and alcohol abuse examinations, but released after just two days.

All Fox products are beneath me, so of course I didn't RTFA, but I can use some quick logic theory to interpolate.

Some news media is difficult to believe.
Some news media is extremely biased.
Fox is a media outlet.

Therefore, it is difficult to believe that some Fox media is not extremely biased.

Some neocon redneck shot her dog. To me this should be a capital offense.
I think we should dig her up, kill her again, and toss her rotting carcass into the Carnival Triumph bilge.

Then we shoot holes in the hull and let it sink. Then it will biodegrade and eventually become a reef for unicellular organisms in the Gulf of Mexico. It may take 70 or so years, but hey, it's not easy to get much value from a stupid whitebread cracker southern country redneck b*tch like that.

blatz514: WhippingBoy: Lenny_da_Hog: WhippingBoy: Lenny_da_Hog: WhippingBoy: Fubegra: I'm guessing she didn't want to become dog chow.

Exactly. It's not like she could have put the dog outside, or locked it in a closet, or something.

She could have left it there, where the police would take it to a shelter, and then it would be killed.

Are you kidding? Do you have any idea how much some country luvin' redneck would pay for "Mindy McReady's Suicide Dog"???

If it had lived, they would have suspected it of murder and lynched it.

Only if it was a black dog.

"Mindy really loved her dog and that would not have been an act of malice at all," the pal insisted. "It would have been more of a case where she just didn't want to leave the dog alone."

She probably thought she and the dog would get into heaven together like some Earl Hamner Jr. written episode of Twilight Zone.

Elzar: "A true suicide is a paced, disciplined certainty. People pontificate, "Suicide is selfishness." Career churchmen like Pater go a step further and call in a cowardly assault on the living. Oafs argue this specious line for varying reason: to evade fingers of blame, to impress one's audience with one's mental fiber, to vent anger, or just because one lacks the necessary suffering to sympathize. Cowardice is nothing to do with it - suicide takes considerable courage. Japanese have the right idea. No, what's selfish is to demand another to endure an intolerable existence, just to spare families, friends, and enemies a bit of soul-searching. The only selfishness lies in ruining strangers' days by forcing 'em to witness a grotesqueness.

This is certainly one of those times when child services (or whatever they call it there), did the right thing.  Apparently the judge knew she was unstable to the point of being danerous, and made sure the kids were out of her care.

So, yeah, I agree with you.  She almost certainly would have blown them away too.

I think she's the only suicide though.  The others were mostly relapses and OD, or another related health problem; like Jeff Conaway  kept getting back on painkillers due to multiple back surgeries, and he eventually died of pneumonia, but his addiction to painkillers may have prevented him from realizing how sick he was with pneumonia and getting the necessary treatment.

It all makes sense now... MacReady... McCready... coincidence? I think not.

"Mindy really loved her dog and that would not have been an act of malice at all," the pal insisted. "It would have been more of a case where she just didn't want to leave the dog alone."

She was worried about the dog being alone, but not worried about leaving her children alone.  That is one big boatload of mental illness right there.

Elzar: "A true suicide is a paced, disciplined certainty. People pontificate, "Suicide is selfishness." Career churchmen like Pater go a step further and call in a cowardly assault on the living. Oafs argue this specious line for varying reason: to evade fingers of blame, to impress one's audience with one's mental fiber, to vent anger, or just because one lacks the necessary suffering to sympathize. Cowardice is nothing to do with it - suicide takes considerable courage. Japanese have the right idea. No, what's selfish is to demand another to endure an intolerable existence, just to spare families, friends, and enemies a bit of soul-searching. The only selfishness lies in ruining strangers' days by forcing 'em to witness a grotesqueness."

A human can be responsible for themselves and move on

Someone who is this depressed may see taking care of there pet as the only reason that they can make it to the next day, then one day they crash and realize there beloved companion will only be there for so long and just cant deal with life any more. Then they take the next step, they remove that final connection to they can go in peace

If only this guy shot the dog first.. nah, what I am thinking?  God only knows what terrible things the neighbor's cat was going to tell him to do...

Children are more likely to be cared for by relatives.  The dog might just be sent to a shelter.

cryinoutloud: CapeFearCadaver: I'm thinking that having them taken away is what set her off to begin with. Could be wrong, however.
Nor do I think her kids are feeling lucky at the moment, but whatever.

Her boyfriend killed himself in the same house not more a couple of months ago.  I'm thinking that didn't help her a bit.


I think she found the proof that the dog killed the boyfriend and shot it.  Then realized no one would ever believe her, so she shot herself.

Fano: spentmiles: Bit'O'Gristle: Didn't wanna leave the dog alone huh? Bullshiat. I had to shoot one of my dogs, and it was the hardest thing i have ever had to do. I think it was more "her spirit will be with me" than she didnt want the dog to be alone, as SOMEONE would have taken it. Thank god her kids werent there, she would have offed them too.

Hard for you maybe.  Like Mindy, I grew up on a farm where death, probably more so than life, was part of the daily routine.  Some animal was either too sick to go on, or more often, we had too many already.  I remember standing behind the barn cat with a hammer as she gave birth.  Then one of our mules got tangled up in some barbed wire and all I had was a cattle prod.  It took forever and stunk like all get out.  For my birthday one year, all of our chickens came down with some sort of avian flu.  My back hurt from lugging around the weed whacker all day.  Was it fun?  At first.  But then it was just work.  That's farm living, I suppose.

I've never been happier than the day after my folks passed away in their sleep and I was free from that griding existence.  I herded all the horses and goats and pigs and everything else into the huge aluminum equipment barn and chained the doors.  They said you could see the smoke and hear the animals all the way in town.  I guess you get a little callous living around animals like that, but somebody's got to do it.

Transcendent.


Indeed.  Kind of reminds me of that Super Bowl commercial with Paul Harvey.

Anderson's Pooper: She didn't commit suicide, she was broke and out of dog food and didn't want the poor pup to go hungry.


And then she shot herself because she felt bad after finding a can of dog food behind the hamburger helper?

quatchi: "This was at least her third attempt [at suicide]," said the insider. "She is finally at peace."

Third times the charm?

"Mindy really loved her dog and that would not have been an act of malice at all," the pal insisted. "It would have been more of a case where she just didn't want to leave the dog alone."

She probably thought she and the dog would get into heaven together like some Earl Hamner Jr. written episode of Twilight Zone.


That makes you at least 30 years older than I might otherwise have guessed.

I was already smiling when I saw your (own) color pop up but by the time I hit the hammer/cat sentence, salad had shot out of my nose and the vinaigrette burns like fire.

So, thanks!


The hammer/cat sentence was the one that made me guffaw as well.

I have never favorited spentmiles, and I never will. The reason is King Haggard's. " I like to watch them. They fill me with joy. The first I felt it I thought I was going to die. I said to Drew Curtis I must have them, all of them, all there are. For nothing makes me happy but their shining and their grace. So Drew Curtis caught them. Each time I see spentmiles quotes, it is like that morning in the main page and I am truly young, in spite of myself."

As I scroll down a page, I don't always read a poster's name, although certain threads I feel like he will show up. And then as I read some preposterous tale, I look up and realize what I have just read.

I am certain it was a practice shot.  She wanted to make sure the gun would function and that the shot would kill.  At that level of despair there's no symbolic gestures, just the intense desire to do the job and end the pain.

Lenny_da_Hog: Did she leave her dishes dirty in the sink? It's important.


My great uncle Ebby didn't. He washed the dishes, dried them and put them away. Then he took his shotgun and blew his brains out over the kitchen sink. His brother (who had been his constant companion and best friend since they were little) had just died of lung cancer, and Ebby couldn't go on without him. So he cleaned up their house as best he could, and (I guess) decided that shooting his brains out over the kitchen sink would be the easiest to clean up for whoever found his body. I wondered why he didn't just go out into a field or barn or something, but I suppose he wanted to be in the home he'd lived in for decades before he died. Or he didn't want coyotes or wolves to eat his corpse. It was a closed-casket double funeral for both my great uncles. Tragic, but beautiful at the same time.

/not a troll, this actually happened.

Since not wanting to be "selfish" kept me alive for five years....I'll keep telling myself it's the selfish thing to do.

Not only did she kill her dog, she left her youngest child with 0 parents.  The child's father killed himself in January.   This was such a selfish thing to do.  If she believed her child could survive without her, why not the dog?

 because unlike the daughter, the dog lacked the opposable thumbs to off itself.

 mindy obviously felt she and the father had already more than succeeded in gifting the daughter with all the genetic and psychological tools to do the job to herself. the dog, however, needed some help.
