Under the Dome

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.
