Someone on MetaFilter asks: "Which pet is more likely to eat a deceased owner, a cat or a dog?" Heh. This article seems to indicate that it's usually dogs, but the Straight Dope reckons Amy'd be chewing on our faces within a day or two. Yeah, I'll buy that. Now the question is which one of us she'd eat first. I'm not sure whether her loyalty to me as the Alpha female would outweigh the fact that I'm obviously a much juicier and tastier morsel than the hairy Mr. Snook...

Addendum: Holy crap! I didn't realize that the face transplant lady had her face chewed off by her own dog after taking a bunch of sleeping pills! That's nuts. I wonder if she still has the dog. I don't think I could sleep in a house with an animal THAT HAD A TASTE FOR MY OWN FLESH.

Funny, I was just talking to a work colleague about the same thing. He was an ambulance worker, and reckons that he's seen quite a few instances of crazy old cat ladys passing away, and being eaten by the cats.....

In the captions of the face-transplant photo collection, it says that the dog was eventually euthanized.

I read somewhere that the woman tried to comit suicide by taking sleeping pills and the dog was trying to wake her up. Still not very pleasant but not just a savage attack.
