Here are a couple of things that bother me about this story. basically, these two sentences: "They looked in the window and saw that the man was obviously dead" along with "two chihuahuas had died of starvation in the room with the dead man."

So what's not being said here is that those poor chihuahuas probably ate part of the dead guy.

Maybe they didn't and that's why they starved.

The children, who are grown, believed the man was taking care of the couple's needs, he said.

Seriously? Your 76 year old father has a history of heart disease and your mother has Alzheimer's and you don't check on them for a month?

Those poor dogs.

Why didn't the dogs eat him?

That's my take on it too. Poor dogs. Just for the record, if I die and you're starving go ahead and eat me. It's not like I'll notice. The same goes for your carnivorous pet. People have entirely too much reverence for corpses.

Another thing that bugs me: chihuahuas are barky yappy dogs, so was the lady deaf? How big was the house? There's no way a dog would just lay down in bedroom and starve quietly.

Came here to say this.  Stories like these are the collateral damage of our culture which tries to forget the elderly.

Or they have the metabolism of mice, and will die in 48 hours.

I'm going to show this story to everybody who brings up the whole "who will take care of you when you're older" bullshiat when I say I'm not having kids.

I have grandparents in similar condition. Grandfather is stubborn as hell, refuses help, disconnected his main line for a cell phone one of his sons supplied him, but often times turns it off.

We check in on him, but how do you expect to work full time and do this all the time too... it's not easy.

Not weird, just not uncommon over time.
With the volume of people that there in the nation (much less the world)
And the diverse ways of them living.

Sooner or later, someone is going to fall through the cracks.
While you attempt to prevent it, it's going to happen.

It's just that people get upset because it's not the "romantic", "preferred" or "ideal" way for things to happen.
But it does...

I'm sorry for the dogs, the lady will live  (and will be oblivious to it)
It's the offspring that we have to wonder about.
But people get distracted by things...and we don't know their relationship.
So in this case, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

For example, I'm in contact with my mother often...and she lives with my sister, so I'd know immediately.
My father, we don't have as close a relationship...he's far away...and he lives with no family.
So who know how long before we found out with him, in comparison to her.

Life (and death) can be inconvenient.

In mutterfark's defense, Halle Berry is an award-winning, famous actor, but I wouldn't know a scene from Catwoman if it crawled out of Hell and bit me on the dick.

Nah, once you were elderly it doesn't matter how much of a total asshole you were to your kids, they have to magically love and respect you again.

Wouldn't the dogs more likely have died of thirst? You need water more often than you need food.

My brother was all verklempt after our parents died about not visiting the folks very often.

He also talks about someday doing something with my monsters once they're out of diapers - and they're grown now, and barely know his name.

/Good intentions and all - but LOVE IS A VERB! So farking DO something.

Grandpa died in his sleep, up on the bed. Dogs might not have been able to get up there.
