New York man credits dog for winning lottery ticket
A New York man is now a millionaire, and said he has his dog to thank.
Dale Farrand said he went to a Fort Edward convenience store last month to get a treat for his dog. Realizing he had some extra money to spend, he opted to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket.
A few scratches later, he discovered his ticket was worth $10 million.
Farrand said he knows what he’ll do with some of the money.
“Take care of about 39 relatives we’ve got … between grandchildren, children, nieces and nephews. Set up bank accounts for them so that they can have that for college,” he said.
Farrand also said he’ll use the money to pay off the mortgage on the family home.
