Man credits pregnant dog for $2M lottery win
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Gray News) – A dog in Florida is living up to the adage of being her owner’s best friend.
Leonard Linton says he’s now a millionaire because of his pregnant dachshund named Ivy.
According to the Florida Lottery, Linton took a different and quicker route home after receiving a call that Ivy wasn’t feeling well.
He made a quick pit stop at a convenience store in Live Oak where he purchased a $10 scratch-off game and won the $2 million grand prize.
Linton chose a one-time, lump-sum payment of over $1.6 million at the lottery headquarters in Tallahassee on Monday, claiming the prize with his lucky pup by his side.
“I still can’t believe it. This is life-changing, but I’m definitely getting Ivy a new kennel,” Linton said.
