Please don't make your animal buddy share your recklessness.

This is the guy who made the news a few days ago by running the Colorado River on a makeshift craft he called a raft. As expected, he died. The sad part is, he took his Corgi with him. Why he thought his dog would share his urge to commit suicide is a mystery. Dogs will go anywhere and do anything their humans ask. It's called trust. What this human did is a huge betrayal of that trust. If we cannot discourage people from suicide, I hope there's a way we can convince them to provide for their animal friends before they take the final step.

That a group of rafters would spot him bobbing along like a little cork, pull him out of the water, and treat him to a nice piece of steak.
