“Dead Man’s Dog Killed To Go With Him To Grave”

some of you might have already heard on the news...

from Arkansas news:

Before Donald Ellis was buried last week at Oakland Cemetery in Monticello, his healthy 2-year-old Yorkie was euthanized and put to rest alongside him.

what's this craziness? let's discuss.

That is downright SCAREY!!! my mom and dad are OLD and I am young...I don't want to hang out with them.
I will go live with my skin brother or sister.

Didn't the ancient egyptians do the same thing? Even killed all the servants so they could have people waiting on them in the afterlife. Mom says it creeps her out!

People are weird!

That is really sad. It is awful to put a healthy young dog to sleep. Perhaps none of the family would take it and he was worried what would happen to it. Still it would have been nice if it had had a chance of a new home.

What a shame for the poor Yorkie! He was way too young to die for such a senseless reason!

Love ya lots

That's just crazy. Now, when I die I actually DO expect them to put Mommy and Daddy to sleep to be buried with me! I mean, come could they go on without me?? Bwahahahaha!

We don't talk about crazy at our house - it only makes the crazies do more crazy stupid things....

Shame on that crazy ole man - wonder if they let him in heaven?

Hey dude, I'm in SiberIA. (Mom says I'm exagerating. It's just Iowa...) Our snow is finally melting! No flowers yet, but some green stuff poking up, so it's a start!

Oh my goodness...Where was the ASPCA. Didn't someone have sense enough to know that the dog should not have been killed because that was his owners dying wish....Please....That is so selfish. This was a healthy 2 year old yorkie.
