Wednesday’s Wild and Wacky World of Dog News: Three Lucky Chihuahuas

You’ve heard the expression, “living the life of Riley”?  I don’t know who Riley is, but I’m thinking I would rather be living the life of Conchita, Lucia, and April Marie.  As the four-legged children of Gail Posner, they got used to living in a luxurious $8.3 million mansion on Sunset Island near Miami. 

When Posner died last March, she left $1 million to her 2-legger, but $3 million to the dogs (and $27 million to her household staff!).  Of course, the will is being contested, but there appears to be some precedent for Posner’s over-indulgence of the Chihuahuas.  At one point, she hired a publicist for Conchita to promote the dog as the world’s most spoiled.  In 2007, the dog was reported to have a $12,000 summer wardrobe and a $15,000 diamond necklace, although the dog refused to wear it.

I’m thinking $15,000 worth of diamonds around the neck might make a Chihuahua tip over, but I’d be happy to wear it instead!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

  1. Yes, I’m for pets to stay as natural as they came into this world. . . that is –
    no Barbie-ing over. One isn’t even sure they appreciate being dolled up – and, put into human terms . . . probably even feel silly!
    What they never get enough of though is . . . lots of love and attention (just like humans)!

  2. We brits are crazy on spoiling our pooches but the worst are the french. I used to breed yorkies in Paris and my clients spent more on their Yorks than their mistresses ;-)

  3. I am not at all against lavishing fine things on your pooch. I love to spoil mine, though they have yet to receive any diamonds from me. But can you imagine how many dogs this sort of many could have helped? There is a group called AmazonCares that does amazing things for homeless dogs with very little money. Just 1/10th of this would have helped huindreds and hundreds.
