World's Richest Dog

Trouble, the beloved Maltese of
billionaire Leona Helmsley,
became an international celebrity
when Helmsley died and left him
$12 million.
(Since he was used to traveling
in stretch Mercedes limos, he
needed the money to maintain
his lifestyle.)
Now, Trouble has died at the age
of 12.
(And he won't be interred next
to Helmsley, as she requested,
because of cemetery
So who's ready to snatch up the
"world's-richest" modifier like a
chew toy?
Though Trouble made a splash
in the States, the world's richest
dog is technically Gunther IV, a
German dog worth $372 million
(minus the cost of those
awesome sunglasses). His
owner left him the money.
