Healthy dog put down in Virginia so it can be buried with owner

A dog in Richmond, Virginia, was put down in March this year because her owner left these explicit instructions in her will wanting the pet to be laid to rest with her. Emma, a shih tzu mix, was put down and cremated, despite efforts of an animal shelter to stop it happening. Workers at the Chesterfield County Animal Services reportedly spent two weeks trying to stall efforts for the euthanizing.

Selfish cunt. I won't have a dog just for my pleasure because I work and won't leave it alone for 9 hours a day. These are people who get a pet solely for them and not considering the pet as an independent animal with rights and responsibilities (the main one being to not crap in the house).

Disgusting. They don't kill the owner when the pet dies so where's the justice in this?

Why couldn't they have had the dog buried with them after it passed of natural causes? Just dig a small hole above their grave and bury the dog.

Selfishness at its finest, a person that thinks that way can't possibly feel love. One has to have some serious mental disorder to rationalize that way.

This is what happens when grown adults push dogs around in strollers and walk with little baggies of dog doo in their hands instead of throwing it in the nearest empty field. It was insane a long time ago, wake up.

I... I don't know how I feel about this? Doesn't the poor doggy have a right to live without his owner?

My dog gets hit by a car and dies, I cry my eyes out. This lady, who I don’t doubt had the best of intentions, has her dog killed for no reason. People need to respect life more. I don’t step on an ant if I don’t have to. But I still kill and eat chickens. I can respect life and still eat steak.

That state kills perfectly healthy babies EVERY DAY, so at this point who cares about a dog compared to babies!
