The art of bad pet ownership: the 2012 edition.

As you know, I don't really think all that much of the Pattersons as pet owners. The reason for that is that, well, the Pattersons are expected to be pet owners and if someone were to design people to be irresponsible twits who shouldn't have pets, he wouldn't be able to do better at it than to create John and Elly. John, as we know, brought Farley into their lives in order to teach his kids something and primary caregiver Elly would insist on thinking that he's a man in a sheepdog suit even if she had had a pet as a child.

What really sells the idea that John and Elly should have been the ones to stroke out and die on that riverbank is their stupid refusal to neuter Farley. Not only did their stupidity create a problem animal welfare people want to not have to deal with, it meant that he'd have to be penned up in any kennel in the land. Speaking of kennels, Elly is daydreaming in Technicolor if she assumes that Farley was having a good time with his impromptu substitute pack and being treated like he was in solitary. Only an idiot would not see that he'd be pining away for the humans that abandoned him.
