I thought it was a little odd of Lorelai to be so stand-offish about Michel’s dog’s funeral. She ( and Sookie ) had no issue going all out supportive when Babette lost her cat Cinnamon, and they threw the wake for her. Lorelai also has her own dog, and I’m sure when Paul Anka crosses the rainbow bridge, she would do the exact same thing for him – if not even more grandiose. Granted, I know a large part of it was that this was the time when Lorelai and Chris were on the cliff of separation so she had other things on her mind. Even so, I still feel like she would have been “weirded out” by the dog funeral simply because it was Michel. Sookie also thought it was a waste of time, and she, too, participated and cooked for the cat’s wake.
