    A New York man will be living large thanks to his decision to buy some Slim Jims for his dog.

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

    The Fort Edward man says he bought a $30 ticket at a local Cumberland Farms convenience store while buying Slim Jims snacks for his dog Boots.

    He scratched the ticket in his car and realized he was a winner. Farrand says he drove straight home and had his wife check the ticket for him.

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

    He says he'll use the windfall to pay off his mortgage, make home improvements and help his children and grandchildren.
