The Multi-Millionaire Dog

To offset news of football star Michael Vick’s canine inhumanity, there is word that recently deceased Leona Helmsley has left a $12 million trust to care for her 8-year-old white Maltese, Trouble and $3 million more to ensure that the dog is buried beside her and her husband, Harry, in a luxury mausoleum.

Between these polar extremes of animal cruelty and kindness, an organization, 2nd Chance for Pets, is encouraging owners to make provisions in their wills to avoid having their dogs join the estimated 300,000 or more animals that are euthanized after the deaths of their owners.

That’s a problem Trouble will never have to face.
