TMI Tuesday.....

A Mr. Butch 'Red Rocket' Borzoi from Humpyerleg Missouri asks...
"Dear Mr. Knowitall, I heard that some critters are richer than people.
Can this possibly be true? Can you shed some light on this for me?"
Dear Butch....Of course I can!
That cute little mutt Eddie from the TV show 'Frasier' for example earned an estimated $11,000.000 PER EPISODE . And when he died in 2006 was worth about $3.3 MILLION bucks! But thats nothing compared to some Lucky Dogs and Cats...
* Gunther IV, a German Shephard, is worth $328 Million. German Countess Karlotta Liebenstein left $109 Million bucks to her dog Gunther III when she died in 1992, but very clever trustee's invested well and TRIPLED that fortune for Gunther's pup!
* Toby Rimes a Poodle, is worth about $82 Million! This descendant of the original Toby, inherited $27 Million bucks from wealthy NYC eccentric Ella Wendel in 1931. Toby's trustees must be slackers!
* Frankie The Chihuahua, and Ani and Pepi cats, are worth about $5.5 Million each! The three pampered pets live in a $18 million dollar San Diego mansion, while her caretaker Lerissa Patrick, lives in a small adjoining apartment.
* Two cats named Hellcat and Brownie, are worth about $3.6 Million each: Offspring of the original fat cats who inherited $750.000 from San Diego Doctor William Grier.
How about Gigoo The Hen? A nest egg of $18 Million was left to her in 1999 when publisher Miles Blackwell's wife predeceased him by about 3 weeks.
I hope that this answered your questions Butch, and bewildered you as much as it did me.
Mr. Knowitall grows weary, I'm now going to Bark at the Moon, maybe some rich asshole will leave me something...

Still, what that really means is the animals owner is rich. Unless we've started legally emancipating pets.
