the wealthiest dog in the world

Leona Helmsley, who died last week, has left $12 million to her dog, Trouble.

She left $5 million to each of two grandchildren on condition they visit their fathers grave once a year. To her two other grandchildren she left nothing (for reasons known to them).

That dog, Trouble, must have been a pretty good friend to her. I wonder what a dog will do with so much money... hmmmmm

(this qualifies for this blog because Leona Helmsley was Jewish)


  1. ruff rafi,

    ruff ruff ruff, ruff ruff, RUFF!!!

    ruff ruff rufffffffffff, lol

    :P hehehehhehehehe

    (I wrote this verbatim from what my dog says the story really is....-shaya)

  2. im just curious, how do you give a dog 12 million dollars? like practically, where do you put that money? What happens to it?

  3. shaya - but your dog cannot be trusted!

    whats - I was wondering that as well. I guess they appoint a guardian...

  4. Do we want to claim her?

    (Actually, I also heard she left billions of dollars to charity as well......)

  5. You know, under US law, dogs are property and cannot inherit. The money has to be left in a trust, with a trustee appointed to use for a specific purpose (the welfare of the dog, in this case).

    But it shouldn't be possible to "leave the money to the dog."

    The two grandkids who got nothing have got to be pissed, and if I were the dog's trustee, I'd be even more pissed...
