  •  I don't think he knew what he was doing, but... (5+ / 0-)

    in senility do you act totally against your previous morals?

    Or maybe he had a Dudley Doo-Right scene in his head and thought tying the dog to the tracks was the way to get it saved.

    •  Yes, actually, one can act totally against... (5+ / 0-)

      one's previous morals when in the grips of senile dementia.

      My grandfather was one of the kindest, gentlest men ever to walk the face of the earth. He was firm, but never rose his voice, let alone his fists. He never even swore. He completely changed during the last year of his life. As the dementia became more pronounced he would have screaming rages, he attacked his care givers, hitting one quite badly. It was terrible. He was nothing like himself.
