Ned Mallie loves his 13-year old dog Annie, a Kerry Blue. So much so that his wife Thelma accuses him of caring more for the dog than her. When Ned returns from a business trip, Thelma has bad news: Annie died a few days after he left and she buried him in the woods. Because Thelma did not call a vet, Ned is convinced that she buried Annie alive and he slowly plots his revenge. Written by garykmcd

Good ending
26 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man is so fond of his dog that he treats his wife as a second class citizen. When she ends up having to bury the dog while he's out of town, he never gets over it and plots to kill her and make her go through what he thinks the dog went through. Needless to say it doesn't end the way he thought it would.

This is a good example of just rewards, but unfortunately it fits in real well with the way people in today's society care more for animals than people. I think the animal rights people have created this belief.

Nowadays we would find an organization like Peta taking the side of the man for his obsessive love of his pet, yet we all see how insane it is for a person to prefer animals to humans.

This episode stands out as very different from most of the rest. I've watched nearly every episode and a great majority of them deal with infidelity and insurance scams. This is the only one I can think of involving a pet.

I liked the way it turned out.
