    Deceased Woman Wants Dog Killed, Buried With Her

    http://6abc.com/439894/

    Bela is currently being held at an animal shelter while the estate decides what to do. Volunteers are trying to stop the euthanization, even offering to pay to find the dog a new home. But Lay's attorney says that's against his client's wishes.

    Legal analysts say the idea isn't entirely uncommon or illegal.

    "Animals are considered property and that's what the point of a will is to dispose of property upon one's death. You have that conflicting though with rules that say you have to treat animals humanely," said legal analyst Mike Allen.
    Good gawd, how selfish can you get huh? What a ****ed up world we live in where something like this is legal.

    I'd rather have the dog die before her, and then put her to death.

    So the fact that dozens of children in Pakistan got massacred...the fact that millions of children die every year from preventable illnesses/conditions...the endless wars that seem to accomplish nothing and bring untold misery to innocent people...none of this seems to register with you enough to start a thread.

    But harm one dog and you are outraged (and no doubt you are not alone).

    That's what's wrong with the world. Millions are suffering and no one give's a sh!t. Kill one dog - everyone freaks out.


    That's the thing you gotta remember about WASPs. They love animals, but they can't stand people.

    BTW - I hope they don't kill the dog...and my guess is they won't.

    Well, they're not exactly sure whether it's legal yet. That's what the court has to decide.

    Personally, I think they're all being stupid, when there's a very simple solution to the problem. All the dead lady wants is for the dog's ashes to be mixed with hers. So just let one of the numerous people who volunteered to adopt the dog do it, under the condition that when it dies naturally, it will be cremated and the ashes mixed with the original owners. Problem solved.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Connie Lay's will gives two options for her German Shepard, Bela, WXIX-TV reports. Option one is for the dog to be killed and the ashes mixed with hers.

    The second option is to send Bela to Best Friends Animal Society in Utah. It's the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in the country, but Lay's attorney says her estate doesn't have the cash to make that happen.
    So give the dog lovers an opportunity to raise money to send the dog to Utah or drive it there themselves. How much can it cost to pile a dog into a car and drive it from Indiana, especially with the price of gas dropping on a daily basis?

    Agreed. It can be this easy.

    But we're humans, so it probably won't be.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I think maybe we're misreading her motives. In her will, she provides two options. In one, the dog is euthanized, just as millions of dogs are every year by humane societies around the country. In the second option, the dog is to be sent to a sanctuary that specifically does not euthanize dogs. That seemed curious. So I can only speculate that she did this because she loved the animal so much that she wanted to ensure that if the dog survived her it would be treated humanely. She probably felt she would have no such assurance otherwise.
