The million-dollar winner says she’s excited to get home to her dog
After learning on Wednesday that she was the big winner, New Jersey native Compton enjoyed a limo ride with her son, Joe. And while she was thrilled about her prize, she was “very anxious” to see her dog, who happened to be celebrating his 11th birthday that day. “I love my dog so much,” she tells reporters in the video above. “He’s all alone on his birthday!”
We’re sure with her winnings, Compton will be able to buy Buddy lots of belated birthday treats – and his favorite, doggie ice cream.
