SOMERVILLE, MASS. (WHDH) - A dog who has been a beloved staple of her Somerville neighborhood and whose owner encouraged residents to visit her in her final days has died.
Sparkle, a beagle-corgi mix, was a constant part of Elm Street for more than a decade, getting pats from neighbors and passers-by as they pass her home. About a month ago, owner Melora Rush found out Sparkle had terminal cancer.
On Thursday, the @MayorSparkle Twitter page announced, “She is no longer with us … She is at peace.”
