A DOG NAMED TROUBLE!
You are looking at what may be the richest dog alive! This dog named Trouble inherited twelve million dollars from her owner, the late real estate billionaire Leona Helmsley. Leona Helmsley died last August 2007 at the age of 87years. This dog is notoriously ill-tempered and bites anyone who dares to come within her biting reaches, without any remorse whatsoever and her owner also known as Queen of Mean, loved her dearly for this her biting abilities! It thus made both of them bitches, photographed here above!
However the gift to Trouble was contested on grounds of insanity of the Maker wherein the court has slashed the gift to mere two million dollars; because the affidavit of the the dog's care-taker deposed that the dog can subsist on two million dollars for the rest of her natural life. In the affidavit, the care-taker, Lekic (photographed here right walking Trouble in white) said Trouble appears to be very happy in her new permanent home and is doing well in all respects, and the extra cash wouldn't buy her more happiness. "Two million dollars . . . would be enough money to pay for Trouble's maintenance and welfare at the highest standards of care for more than 10 years, which is more that twice her reasonably anticipated life expectancy," he said. Lekic put her annual expenses at $190,000, which includes his $60,000 guardian fee, $100,000 for 'round-the-clock security, $8,000 for grooming, $3,000 for miscellaneous expenses, $1,200 for food and anywhere from $2,500 to $18,000 for medical care.
But some pundits are angry at the court's decision reducing the twelve million dollars bequest - according to them it is not what the dog, much less the world, needs that is the controlling factor in this case, no, it is what Leona intended that matters. Leona Helmsley intended for her dog Trouble to inherit twelve million dollars form her fortune of over eight billion dollars!
Because of incessant threats to her life, Trouble was flown by a heavily guarded private jet from her owner's twenty-eight room estate in Connecticut to her new abode in Florida's Sandcastle Mansion also belonging to her late owner; where she currently resides happily! Yet some people go to bed every night without food in their stomach? If there is HELL really, Icheoku affirms that no other candidate eminently qualifies for the hottest space therein as this loony Leona Helmsley? How can she face God and explain to him that, in the face of many starving folks, she willed to her little poodle a staggering sum of $12million dollars USD!
