Do you remember the last time you got a deep tissue massage? You most probably don't.
But if you were Leona Helmsley’s Maltese pet, you'd have no trouble getting pampered on a regular basis. The dog has a scheduled therapeutic sessions with a professional masseuse. Now compare your life.
This post will undoubtedly infuriate you or encourage you to aim for higher in life, but here are the animals that are probably living a better life than you or anyone else in Ghana and even Africa as a whole.
1. Gunther III, Gunther IV
These dogs are apparently richer than 99% of the human population of the world. Countess Karlotta Libenstein of Germany left German Shepherd Gunther III, Gunther IV's father, $106 million. Trustees took the money and invested it and by the time Gunther IV was born, the gift had grown to $372 million.
How does this pet live a better life than you? Gunther IV reportedly purchased a villa from Madonna for more than $3 million and a rare white truffle for $1,500.
2. Toby Rimes
Toby Rimes is living the ultimate live every Ashanti man with a rich uncle wishes for. The poodle inherited her riches from her ancestor who was owned by millionaire Ella Wendel. Ella left $20 million to her pet, nut that money has grown to about $90 million now making Toby the second richest animal in the world.
Yes, we live in an unfair world.
Technically, Trouble is not living a better life than you, because he died in 2010 at the dog age of 64. (64 dog years is just 12 human years). Trouble was hand fed crab cakes, cream cheese and steamed vegetables but still managed to have a net worth of #12 million when he passed away.
Most people loved to hate this dog; we're sure you do too.
Unlike most of the dogs on this list, Flossie made her money through an act of goodwill. After being saved from an animal shelter by Drew Barrymore, the dog supposedly alerted its owner of a fire. Barrymore credits Flossie with saving their lives and in return, added to her will that her $3 million home would be left to her beloved dog, Flossie.
Moral lesson, be kind to people. The experience, be a dog at it.
5. Oprah's Dogs
Yes! Oprah Winfrey has set up a $30 million dollar trust for her five spoiled canines: Luke and Layla (Golden Retrievers), Sadie (Cocker Spaniel), and Sunny and Lauren (Springer Spaniels).
Now I wish to be adopted by her.
This cat earned more than £2 million last year travels in a private jet with two maids and a bodyguard, has written an autobiography and had 48,000 Twitter followers and 60,800 on Instagram.
Chihuahua Conchita was dubbed ‘the world’s most spoilt dog’ after her owner, Florida heiress Gail Posner, revealed that she spent £7,000 a month on her. She once bought Conchita a £10,000 Cartier diamond necklace.
Gigoo, the hen, has a bank account with a modest balance of approximately $10 million.
Many regular, every-day people think that this spoiled treatment is a bit over the top for animals. However, trust accounts are still being set up for pampered pets all around the world as people cannot even afford a 2 cedis meal a day.
