The World’s Luckiest Dog Has Run Out of Luck


Trouble Helmsley, the Maltese dog to whom Leona Helmsley left $12 million upon her death, has died at the age of 12, or 84 in dog years. Though she lived her last months in ill health and reduced circumstances (a judge later knocked her inheritance to a mere $2 million), Trouble remained “one of the world’s richest dogs,” according to the Daily News. Are they counting Trump? No one’s actually seen his financial-disclosure forms.
