Whatever happened

to a man looking for a good wife and finding a young bitch still clinging to her rawhide bone?
"NEW DELHI - A man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death — an act he believes cursed him — a newspaper reported Tuesday."
Before the "slippery slope" crowd spins a bearing, this little wedding ceremony is more or less the equivalent of adopting a dog from the SPCA (other than the superstitious aspect). I don't know how effective little Selvi will be at curing what ails this guy, but adopting her goes a little way towards making up for his past dog abuse. As long as the rest of the family keeps an eye on her.
