Beloved rat terrier. Named after Steve Martin's dog in The Jerk. Initially buried in a plot at Uniontown City Cemetery in Uniontown, Kentucky. The following quote is from an article about the controversy about the burial and the tombstone erected by the dog's owner . . . "a court case from 100 years ago appears to give ammunition to those who want the dog removed. In 1907 the Kentucky Court of Appeals, which was then the state's highest court, heard a case involving Cave Hill Cemetery in Jefferson County. Henry Hertle sued the cemetery company, Alice Riddell and W.G. and Ada Hansbrough because the Hansbroughs had buried their pet dog in a burial lot owned by Riddell. The high court ruled in favor of Hertle, saying he 'not only has the right to the actual use of his lot for the purpose for which it was sold to him, but he has also in common with all the other lot owners the right to have the cemetery maintained as a whole for the purposes for which it was dedicated.'" . . . Following a lawsuit, the rat terrier's remains were removed from the City Cemetery in September of 2007.
