Dog Death Prompts Malpractice Suit
To Ellen Riff and her son Adam, their dog Lucky was more than a pet.
"I actually thought of him as my baby, not just a dog," she says.
Adam says Lucky was the little brother he never had.
"He'd take a toy, play with it and put it back in when he was done," says Adam.
Lucky brought moments of happiness during a bitter divorce and comfort after the death of Riff's mother.
"It's really hard to describe in words what he meant, because I loved him so much," says Adam.
So when the 8-year-old sheltie visited his local vet for a routine tooth extraction and ended up dying a day later, the Riffs vowed to fight not only for their suffering -- but also for Lucky's.
