A hard dog’s life

A 7-year-old dachshund named Winnie Pooh was left a $100,000 trust fund from her late owner, but isn’t receiving money, according to a new lawsuit in New York. The Manhattan Surrogate’s Court suit was filed by Winnie Pooh’s caretaker, Gramercy Park resident Virginia Hanlon. Hanlon was a friend and neighbour of Winnie Pooh’s owner, Patricia Bowers, an unmarried economist who died in 2010. Bowers appointed Hanlon as the dog’s guardian and another friend and lawyer named Harriet Harkavy as executor of her estate. The will says Harkavy must pay Hanlon income from the trust on a quarterly basis for Winnie Pooh’s care, but the dog’s guardian says she’s only received a few $10 cheques. Hanlon, citing ASPCA guidelines, says Winnie Pooh requires $6,000 yearly for routine care, dog walkers, feeding and medical procedures.
