This isn't the first time Marvin has seen a dead Shih Tzu and it certainly will not be the last. He is old enough now (56) to know that they aren't "just sleeping" and that they have been taken away to a special farm he cannot visit where the dogs can get the rest they need. Even when he was 5, he had a hunch his grandmother's little Mopsy didn't actually buy the farm, that something much less happy was going on. He wishes each time this happened he didn't get sad, but that's just not the way it is.
