    Here's the part where an old man tells a story.
    About a year or so ago, one of our neighbors had a Chihuahua named Brownie, a female. A neighbor on the other side had a Chihuahua named Woody. Well Woodie and Brownie were pals, they played and hung out, and it was obvious without too much anthropomorphism that they really were fond of each other a great deal.
    Well as oft times happens when boys and girls get together, Brownie was expecting. Woodie still hung out and played with her. When Brownie had her litter, Woodie would visit the puppies and Brownie, he would play with them and help look after them.
    When Brownie's owners moved away, poor little Woodie would go into the new people's house and get shooed away. He hung outside the door for days. He was in my opinion heartbroken and despondent. It took perhaps a few months before he seemed to understand.
    They say animals don't have emotions??
    He was a good dad, better than some people in this world.

    An endearing anecdote, CP. How perfectly placed is the word "anthropomorphism". Where is Woody now?

    He trots around the neighborhood and hangs out at his house with his owners. 🙂
    There was no poison involved so no need for an anecdote. 😕

    "He trots around the neighborhood"... still melancholy seeking an explanation or at least closure.

    Maybe he's looking for an anecdote. 😕

    You are thinking of antidote
    An anecdote is one of those dog-bandanas that doting owners put around their pooch's neck.

    Maybe Woody's looking for Brownie's Aunt Dot who used to dote on her litter.

    I know some people are okay with GMO foods, but dog bananas just sounds gross. 😕

    Woodie is the illegitimate son of functional illiterates.
