A Dog’s Life Just Got Better Thanks to Leona Helmsley

New York—Some will say the old broad was loose as a goose. Others will say that the so-called Queen of Mean was a greedy tax cheat. One thing for sure she loved man’s best friend.

Aside from leaving $12 million bucks to her own mutt, Trouble, she has left somewhere between $5 or 8 Billion dollars for the benefit of dogs. Some are outraged she did not take care of the Red Cross, the poor in America or something far more worthy. I say, “Good for Helmsley”!

Dogs improve the lives of humans in so many ways. I believe that our loyal four legged friends prevent thousands of suicides of otherwise lonely seniors. Dogs also prevent untold violent and property crimes every day and they save human lives as rescue animals. What would the blind and disabled do without help dogs?

If our dogs get subsidized veterinary care so they have a better life and the dog pounds of America become doggie hotels like the human ones Helmsley ran that’s okay by me.
