A woman who died in Virginia had stipulated in her will, that her dog be laid to rest with her . . . even though the dog was perfectly healthy. So the executor of her estate had it EUTHANIZED, and cremated. It was a Shih Tzu mix named Emma.
Apparently this is illegal in most states, however, it's legal in Virginia and North/South Carolina.
This is wrong on so many levels and being a huge dog/pet fan myself, this infuriates me beyond belief.
