Way Back Wednesday………………………………………..
April 5,2005 — The day I received an obituary at The Montclair Times that listed family dogs as survivors. The editor didn’t want me to put that in. I argued with him until he was finally convinced.
He said: “Put the dogs in, but just refer to them as ‘dogs,’ don’t use made-up words like ‘gran-dogs.'”
Now it’s 2022. We’ve come a long way since 2005. Now it’s common knowledge that pets ARE FAMILY! I’ve seen quite a few obituaries since then that list pets as survivors.
