Take Your Pet to the Grave
Last year lawmakers passed a measure so you can take you dog to restaurants. This year, it's "take your dog to the grave."
It's an amendment to a larger bill regulating the "deathcare" industry.
Before, a licensed cemetary could only house human remains. If the governor signs the bill, it will be up to the cemetaries to choose if they want to allow pets in their grounds.
Some pet owners love it, others question whether this was a big waste of lawmakers' time.
"I can understand how pets are a part of your family and they want to keep them close, but to use tax dollars to pass legislation to even have this be allowed is kind of ridiculous," says pet owner Nicole Muszynski.
But folks in the burial business say people want this more than you may think. They say they get a ton of requests for folks to take the ashes of Fido or Felix with them underground.
