Plain and simple, some people, usually of the lighter persuasion, love their dogs more than other humans.
Case in point
Dog gets $12 MILLION in Helmsleys will
In case you don't feel like reading, heres the short take:
Dog (named Trouble) $12 million
Brother - unstated millions
Grand kids (only 2 of the four) - $5 million each, on the condition they visit their late fathers grave - but still less than the dog.
Chaffeur - $100 thousand
Either way, none of the money she left is nothing to sneeze at, but I can't believe she left the dog more money than the people in her life. SMH. Which leaves me to one conclusion -- Michael Vick, say your prayers.
