CHICAGO — Pets are a major part of people’s lives, and sometimes after death.

It seems that there are a lot of dogs that are not forgotten by their owners when they pass away, with canines being named a beneficiary in wills.

How often is this happening?

We discussed that on the “6@6” on Tuesday’s WGN Morning News as the hosts gave their thoughts on this recent trend.

We also discussed Cher’s secrets, polenta, “paragraph texters,” fall cleaning, and more during the segment.

You can watch the “6@6” from the September 12 WGN Morning News in the video above.
