A woman who died in Virginia had stipulated that her dog be laid to rest with her . . . even though it was perfectly healthy. So the executor of her estate had it EUTHANIZED, and cremated. It was a Shih Tzu mix named Emma.
An employee at a shelter who tried to stop it, a funeral director who says he would never accommodate the request, and a vet who says he'd never euthanize a healthy pet. Plus it's illegal to bury a person with an animal in most cemeteries.
