I hate to see animals suffer in movies because you know that an animal who's suffering doesn't understand what's happening, and somehow that just seems to make it worse.

The scene from last night didn't bother me too much, though, because it happened quickly and the dog didn't seem to feel much pain, if any. Odd coincidence, though, that the dog should die just as his master did, so long after taking the pills. As for the patient, I'm inclined to think he must have known about the pills and didn't tell anyone because he wanted to die. I mean, the doctor left the pills with him and told him to take them, and all of a sudden they'd disappear and he wouldn't think anything of it?

Its how they ended the movie The Notebook with the couple dying together in their sleep.

The master and the dog dying didn't bother me, what bothered me was that with how it was setup, the master might have wanted to kill himself so he let the dog swallow the pills. Its going to be interesting debate on any House fan site forums.

Well, while it's true that it's foolish or blatantly stupid to let anyone or any creature swallow a pill that's not intended for it, it was only because the dog was a specific breed that the pills killed it. Possibly the guy knocked it over and didn't think the dog would actually eat the pills (lots of dogs won't, no matter how hard you try or how much cheese you wrap around it - most pet owners can confirm this). It may have just been a sort of tragic mistake on his part that the dog ended up eating them, even if he WAS trying to kill himself and it wasn't an accident / oversite on #13's behalf.

As far as the dog dying shortly afterwards, I would still attribute that to the dog holding on for the sake of its owner, even though it was sick too. Once the owner was dead, the dog didn't have any reason to fight and be strong anymore, so it let go too.

I'm getting choked up again just thinking about it. Damn, that was a very well written episode.

I liked the episode.  Anyone else think 13 is a lot like Cameron? She even sounds like her.  I still want ruthless bitch to get through, as the ones that seem to be going through are a little dull - Kal Penn's character hasn't shown me anything yet that I want to continue seeing.  I like Old Guy though.

[I'm getting choked up again just thinking about it.

No kidding. I've been thinking about my dog that I lost a little over year ago to congestive heart failure. He held on all day long until I came home from work, then died as I was driving him to the hospital. I'd like to think that it was a comfort to him that I was with him at the end and he felt like it was finally okay to let go...

Unbelievably Old Fraud is my favourite new character right now. :)

Yeah, I'm definitely a fan of Unbelievably Old Fraud.  And, Cut-throat Bitch is growing on me.

I thought it was Ridiculously Old Fraud? I am hoping the producers pick him up as well. He's a pretty good actor.

Ah yes, my mistake. I couldn't remember the first adverb off the top of my head. Seeing yours, that sounds more right. I still rocks. :)

As someone who knows someone with a service dog, I'm inclined to think the master gave the pills to the dog intentionally.  Service dogs are trained to not consume anything without consent.  If you ever try to give table food to a service dog, the master will tell you not to, because that will get the dog into the habit of taking table food, and that would compromise the relationship between the dog and the master.

Still both are funny so it doesn't really matter, I still laugh at that and cut-throat bitch.

@Dalty: See that logic, I would have to agree with you that I think the master killed himself, it would make sense as to why the dog would eat it.

Ehn, he didn't do much for me.  Although I'm a little annoyed that they've just replaced him, rather than whittle the cast down a bit.  She's pretty though.  :)

I want 13, Cut-throat bitch, and perhaps mormon guy to win.  The show also needs more Wilson and Cuddy!

I keep hoping Cut-throat bitch will lose.  There just doesn't seem to be a whole lot to her character.  The Harold & Kumar guy also seems to have a lot more going for him now that they've opened up his character a little bit.  I hope it ends up as him, 13, and the Jewish guy.
