An unusual billboard featuring a dog is turning heads in Las Vegas

The bond people share with their pets is often intense, and the loss of one's furry companion can be devastating.

A couple in Las Vegas who recently had to have their beloved Yorkie terrier put down decided to honor his memory in a very big way.

Judith Perez and her fiancé Steve Siegel put up two billboards featuring a picture of the dog, King Louie Siegel, and the message, "You will be missed. Thanks for all the great memories."

Perez says her fiancé came up with the idea, which, at first, she didn't love.

However, as the dog has once been featured on a billboard for an area resort, they told KSNV that they ultimately decided, "...it would be a beautiful tribute for all he gave us to let everyone know he had passed."
