COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) - A man from Anderson won the lottery and chose to tell his dogs before he told his friends.

According to the lottery, the man played a two dollar lottery ticket that he bought at the Stop-A-Minit #11 on N. Main Street in Anderson and won $30,000.

The lottery said the man's dogs didn’t seem interested in celebrating his winning five times The Money ticket, so he called his friends.

“They thought I was lying,” the winner said.

Once the man convinced his friends that the ticket he bought was a winner, they were happy for him and his plans.

The man said he plans to use his prize to invest in his work.
