Widow takes her husband's ashes to NFL game?

Richard Desrosiers never made it to Heinz Field to watch his beloved Steelers play football, but his widow helped him fulfill his dream in death. Thanks to some help from sympathetic donors, Kathleen Desrosiers attended Sunday's game, bringing an urn with some of her late husband's ashes, as well as his ring and two pictures of him. He had died in March of a brain tumor.

Though he lived in Exeter, N.H., Richard Desrosiers adopted the Steelers at an early age and followed them closely. He named his dog Steeler and his wardrobe, by his widow's estimate, was 95 percent Steelers gear.

Desrosiers was covered with a Steelers blanket when he died, and at his funeral, his two stepsons honored his memory by donning Steelers jerseys. » Article here

Ever wanted to just 'rent-a-dog' ? Now you can.

There is a company that plans to rent dogs to Bostonians willing to pay steep fees for a canine friend without worry of commitment.

FlexPetz, a California-based company, will open a Boston branch of its dog rental service this spring with a fleet of 10 dogs available for romps on the Common or weekend sleepovers. The company bills itself as an "unique alternative to full-time pet ownership" that will even drop off a dog when you're ready for it and pick it up when you've had enough. It is drawing howls of condemnation from local animal rights groups and animal behaviorists.

"This promotes dogs as disposable items," said Bryn Conklin, an animal protection specialist at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The company says its target market is busy professionals without time to care for a dog of their own. » Read the full article here

Cheating wife employs 71-year-old mom to shoot hubby

The wife of a man who was shot in the back of the head last month was arrested by Rowlett police Thursday and charged with conspiracy. Robin Handel allegedly had her mother, Jeanelle Thompson invite her husband over for dinner, served him a piece of cake for dessert, police say she shot him in the back of the head.

Victim Steven Handel miraculously survived and managed to call 911. Jeanelle Thompson held police in a standoff for hours before surrendering. She was still jailed Thursday night.

Now Rowlett police say Robin Handell had a motive for masterminding his murder: she wanted to be with a man she met online. Police aren't sure if this person knew anything about the alleged plot. » Article here
