BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: The Second Court of Appeals in Texas has ruled that dogs are worth way more than they're actually worth. This was the case of a couple whose eight-year-old Lab mix was accidentally euthanized by a dog shelter . The first court ruled they were owed only the, quote, cash value of the dog. But the Appeals Court judge, who must be a dog lover, ruled they were owed more damages than that because, quote, "Dogs are unconditionally devoted to their owners."
