Everybody likes to get into the spirit of the holidays, and that can include dogs too. With Halloween just around the corner (okay, it’s over a month away, but the candy is already in the stores, so it must be time to blog about it), you’ll doubtlessly be thinking of appropriate decorations.
The pet dog of billionaire hotelier Leona Helmsley has been left a fortune of $14.6 million in the will of the woman known as the “Queen of Mean”. Trouble, the little Maltese terrier, received the enormous trust fund after Helmsley, who died at the age of 87, cut two of her grandchildren out of her $4 billion fortune. The trust fund was created to care for the beloved dog, who once starred in advertisements for the Helmsley Hotels.
The luxury hotel queen even stipulated Trouble be buried beside her and her husband Harry in a five-star mausoleum that will be maintained with a $3 million perpetual-care trust.

Last year, Riley set a world record – 2.91metres – at the Casterton Kelpie Festival in Victoria.
In February, Ms O’Callaghan received a call from festival organisers who wanted to know if Riley would be competing.
“He’d already won the championship twice in a row,” she said. “They told me if he won a third time he’d no longer be eligible for competition, and could only appear as an exhibitor instead.
“As a trade-off they said they were creating a Kelpie Hall of Fame, and that if Riley won again he’d be inducted into it.”
On June 7, Riley tied at first place with another dog, Rosie – they both jumped 2.625metres – and thus was officially banned from competing there again.
But Ms O’Callaghan was not happy about Riley’s forced retirement.
“He should be allowed to keep on doing what he loves, until another dog comes along and takes the crown. In any sport there’s going to be a younger, fitter competitor coming up in the ranks … every dog has his day,” she said.
Shirley Foster, of the festival committee, said the decision to retire Riley was “all about keeping the event fresh”. She said the Casterton Kelpie Association was considering holding an event for the best jumpers in the country and Riley could compete in that.
