Woman buys full-page newspaper obituary for pet dog

Friday, March 29, 2013

While most pet owners certainly love their companions, one New Jersey woman wanted everyone to know just how much her four-legged friend meant to her.

Upon the passing of her beloved dog, Ginger, Tammy Duffy of Hamilton was understandably crushed.

In honor of their 15 years together, Tammy decided to create a full page obituary in the Trentonian newspaper.

Some may find this as over the top for a dog, but Tammy says she doesn't care.

"I just wanted to do something that demonstrated that she was this amazing dog. Everybody should be blessed to have such a great person in their life," she said.

The ad cost Tammy $900. It was a drop in the bucket, she says, for the love she shared with Ginger.
