Deceased dog gets credit card offer

Adriene Hill Feb 20, 2012

A dog with a credit offer most of us can only dream of.

According to The Sarnia Observer, an Ontario dog named Spark was offered up to 30,000.

But that’s not the only weirdness — turns out Spark the dog has been dead for a decade.  

Her owner tells the paper that if the dog was alive — and had had the card, and knew how to use it — se might have bought a hula hoop.

Which would still leave her a credit limit of $29,996 — give or take.
