No. I would not want to have a family who lost their little two year old to cancer, find her obituary next to Muffy. Sorry, a dog is a dog.
You can do it so much better on facebook where you can put several pictures and a little history, and your friends will respond; or on a dog forum where everyone understands, and will be supportive.
I can understand a newspaper offering once a year, a page, remembering Fido, or something like that where you can submit a photo and a quick blurb about the dog. The Obituaries are not where dog-deaths should be. Sorry, just my opinion.
