Lucky dog!!! New York man wins $10 million when he stops to buy Slim Jims for his dog


A New York man scratched off a lottery ticket and learned he’d won $10 million after stopping in a convenience store to buy some Slim Jims for his dog.

New York Lottery officials said Monday that 73-year-old Dale Farrand won the $10 million prize on a $30 “Cash Spectacular” scratch-off ticket.

The Fort Edward man says he bought the ticket while at a Cumberland Farms convenience store buying Slim Jims snacks for his dog Boots.

Farrand, 73, scratched the ticket in his car, realized he was a winner and drove straight home to have his wife double check it.

He collected his winnings Monday, the Albany Times Union reported.

“I went into the Cumberland Farms to buy some Slim Jims for my dog Boots and decided to buy a ticket,” Farrand said. “I scratched it in the car and started shaking when I realized I won.”

Farrand will receive a lump-sum payment of $6.7 million after required withholdings.

He plans to use the money to pay off his mortgage, make home improvements and help his children and grandchildren.

We’d guess Boots will be getting all the Slim Jims he can eat, as well.
