My Sympathies to Leonard Bean!

So many people have been touched by the comedy of Robin Williams,  it is very sad that he was found dead in his home.  He was a very talented man.  I"m not sure if it is because he was an alien from the planet Orc or if he would have been equally funny had he been an Earthling.  The important thing is that we Earthlings got to enjoy his talent for a long time, and he made a lot of us happier thanks to his comedy.  I feel particularly bad for Leonard Bean, his dog--a pug he rescued from Curly Tail Pug Rescue.  I lost my own Daddy in 2007, and I still miss him so much.  Many times I will sit for hours at the front door waiting for him to come home to us.  So far, it has not happened although I do see him sometimes.  Even my humans know this because they hear me "barking" to him, and they say that Demon must be chatting with Daddy again.  Since we dogs don't have as long a life expectancy as the humans, we don't expect to lose our humans, but it does happen.  I'm sure Leonard will be well cared for by family and/or friends, but he will always miss his human.  I suspect that we dogs often love our humans more than they love themselves.  The humans tend to be harsh on their judgments of themselves, but their dogs think they are wonderful--no matter what they think of themselves.  I think it is very sad that Robin Williams committed suicide, but I am not surprised to learn that he might have been suffering from Parkinsons disease.  Sometimes the humans are experiencing pain--be it physical or mental, and death makes more sense to them than living.  It is a shame they don't have the same compassion for other humans that they have for us dogs.  Most humans won't allow their dog to hang on with constant suffering, but when it is a human, it is supposed to build "character".  I think the world would be a better place without suffering, and I don't think the humans'  "characters" would be any worse because they are happy.  Anyway, I hope that Robin Williams is at peace and I'm sure he is waiting for the day when he will see Leonard and his family and friends again in the place everyone is happy and healthy--and there is no suffering. By the way, don't you think that a man as talented as Williams should have named his dog, Leonard Bacon.  No self respecting dog wants to be named Bean, but Bacon is a name of which a dog can be proud!
