I don't think they actually buried Louie, unless they cremated him. They buried his collar and food dish. That's the kind of stuff I want to hang on to when my pets die, not have buried in my back yard, but I guess we all grieve differently.
Interesting how now the two families can eat Thanksgiving dinner together, when at the start of the LS series, they couldn't even be in the same spot with each other for Karen's birthday. And of COURSE the star of the movie would just happen to have to stay in Stoneybrook an extra day so she could have Thanksgiving dinner with them too. And of COURSE she really wants to be friends with Karen, and they promise to write letters to each other. If Karen actually wrote letters to all the random one-book characters she was totally going to be pen-pals with, she would have no time to get in huge fights with all her friends and throw parties to make it up to them.
Poor Boo-boo. I hate reading that part. Poor old guy, old and sick in a house full of loud kids, and then dying all alone in the back of a closet. The funeral was just strange. Can you imagine this conversation? "Hey Seth?" "Yes Lisa?" "Will you carve a cross? It's for my ex's cat's grave." "Uh...sure." "Also you have to go to the funeral." "That will be awkward. Wait, did you say funeral? For your ex's cat?" "Yes." "..." "Hurry up, that cross isn't going to carve itself."
The scene in this book where Karen's little house family comes home and wakes her up and she gives Andrew a huge hug is pretty cute. Karen usually tried hard to be a good big sister.
