Elizabeth New York, NY 10/16/2007 1:53:56 PM Maybe this sweet dog was kinder to Ms. Helmsley and brought her more happiness than her family members. People can be very unkind and manipulative while animals love unconditionally. Ms. Helmsley went through some very tough times in the past and perhaps her family didn't stick by her while her faithful dog Trouble did. Take now for example. Her own brother won't honor her dying wish to take care of her sweet dog, a dog she loved very much. It is such a small thing to ask, yet he won't do it. He has, however, no problem taking the money. What kind of a brother is he? Maybe if people dug a little deeper into Helmsley's family they would understand why she chose to leave some family members out of the will altogether and give a large portion to Trouble. People are sometimes so quick to say "how rediculous it's a dog," but what if that dog is a better being and has been better to you than your own family. Why are people so threatened by animals anyway? That's another question, but still it makes you wonder. God Bless Trouble. I hope he will be in good hands.
