Former Gov. Perdue uses dog's death to address end-of-life issues

Former Gov. Bev Perdue, a fellow at the Harvard University Institute of Politics, published a blog item on dealing with end-of-llfe issues using the death of her dog, Zipper, as an example of the importance of talking about the topic.

Perdue probably didn't mean to use Zipper as a direct correlation with elderly people, as Zipper was euthanized.

While at Harvard, Perdue is leading a weekly study group on social policy entrepreneurship.

Zipper, former first dog of NC, has died

Dome's condolences go out to former Gov. Bev Perdue and her husband Bob Eaves.

The couple's Tibetan terrier died this week in New Bern, reports the New Bern Sun Journal.

Zipper was 7 1/2 and died after suffering a stroke, the paper reports. She had been suffering from lymphoma.

Eaves told the Sun Journal, Zipper enjoyed one final visit to the Trent River the evening before she died.

Zipper is survived by her mother, Dosie. Both dogs lived the high life in the Executive Mansion during Perdue's term.
