    Dog Gone It!

  • His mother was mommying him a little too much and saying “no” backfired and lead to him killing her. Some people don’t think before they act – human nature. But what was he thinking? His mother is now dead by his hands, she will never return. There must be something wrong with him, if he just killed her like that. Or maybe he snapped? And thought that he’d get his way if he killed her. Sorry to say, but it doesn’t work that way. He is 19 years of age too. He could have left home, or moved in with his father, if he really wanted a dog. Now there is no dog, and the mommying has finally come to an end. Poor woman… but that being said, she could have been mean… but I don’t know. He looks warped, did he have some kind of mental health issue? Because those kind of people don’t think, they just act. Maybe he was always like that? But that being said if you live under their roof… expect the unexpected. And now his older brother? Who looks very much like him, only a little bigger has no mother.
