A window sticker advertising Visa and MasterCard credit cards hangs in a window in San Francisco, Calif. One dog in Canada recently was offered a credit card with a huge spending limit. - 

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.
