Narcissistic to the Very End and Beyond

A healthy dog was put to death in Virginia at the behest of its owner, who made the request in her will.

The owner of Emma, a Shih Tzu mix, died March 8. Her dog was held at the Chesterfield Animal Shelter before it was picked up March 22 and then euthanized, NBC affiliate WWBT in Richmond first reported.
Emma's owner, Anita Cullop-Thompson, 67, wanted to be interred with her pet, Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service owner Larry Spiaggi told NBC News.
Dogs are property, so as far as the dead woman ordering her dog be put down, no crime, there.

But morally and ethically? That is severely fucked up. I'm somewhat surprised that they could find a vet to do it, for as far as I know, the Cat-Murdering Vet hasn't taken up practice in Virginia.

If there is an afterlife, Emma's owner should spend it with Emma gnawing her ass every day.

Re: the cat murdering vet, who shot a cat through the head with an arrow. Your link leads to an article that in part tells us:

"Lindsey had argued to the court that what she did “'had nothing to do with the practice of veterinary medicine.'”

I believe that this self-assessment is 100 percent accurate. Nor did it have anything to do with compassion or simple human decency. Which, I think, seems to be the point.

To All,

Many Vets give up their practice because of the animals owners request to terminate the life of a healthy inconvenient pet.

OK, lady...and if your dog predeceases you, we'll have to reciprocate.
