The phrase “Going to the dogs” takes on new meaning when it comes to socialite Gail Posner, who left her Chihuahua, Conchita, a $3 million trust fund and an $8.3 million beachfront Miami mansion, much to the distress of Gail’s son Bret. Similarly, controversial hotel magnate Leona Helmsley ignored her relatives to leave $12 million to her dog, Trouble. In this case, the court eventually trimmed the canine’s inheritance to $2 million. Quaker State heiress, Eleanor Ritchey, left over $12 million to her homeless dog shelter and its 150 residents. After the last one passed away, the money went to Auburn University for research of animal diseases. The largest inheritance to date, however, is an astounding $80 million, to Gunther III, the German Shepard of German Countess Karlotta Liebensetein. The hound’s money managers invested his holdings so well that the estate left to the dog “until he dies” is now in the paws of Gunther IV and worth $372 million.
