COLLARED: Robert Meier of Tampa, Fla., has been charged with theft and
forgery after he allegedly married his comatose girlfriend hours
before she died, then charged $20,000 to her credit cards. But, he
insists, it wasn't his idea. "He said he was sitting on the couch
when Ms. Sewell's dog told him she would want him to go on living,
have a better life, and it would be OK to use her credit cards," a
police spokesman said. However, an investigator who searched the
apartment for evidence couldn't find collaborating evidence of that.
"The dog was in the garage and didn't say anything," he said. (AP)
...Oh, sure: `man's best friend' -- until the going gets tough.
