So sad

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 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 the local police inspector.

I wonder if there is more to it than that, Eurodog. That's a very extreme reaction, especially for two people to take, over the death of their dog.
