Just for a laugh, in case you missed this one: Maltese “Trouble” Helmsley, passed away at the age of 12 (84 in dog years).
Lots of coverage on this one from the top news sources. My only comment is that I don’t think a dog can really own anything under the law but a will or trust can certainly pay for the care of the dog.
I’m assuming “Trouble” died intestate. 🙂
