Hello, my dear Smalldogarific readers! Did everyone enjoy their holiday weekend? I do hope that everyone have put away their white linen pants and covered up the barbecue by now. Is everyone ready for back to school? Pencils sharpened? Shirts ironed? Good.

If you are looking to marry rich, Trouble, the recently departed Leona Helmsley’s Maltese, might be the richest small dog in America? Helmsely left Trouble a $12 million trust fund. Picture it, the wedding of the century! In her will, the “Queen of Mean” also directed that, “when my dog, Trouble, dies, her remains shall be buried next to my remains in the Helmsley mausoleum.” It is worth noting that Helmsley left nothing to two of her four grandchildren for, “reasons that are known to them.”

Maddy, a Chihuahua (she’s actually part poodle) from New York City has been named the fastest Chihuahua in the US.  She won the title by traveling 35-feet in just two seconds, leaving 14 other competitors choking on her dust.  I initially, misread the headline and thought it said fattest Chihuahua in the US, a sight, I was much looking forward to seeing. Either way, Maddy is quite the catch. She understands English and Mandarin, and is an aggressive eater. Maddy’s owner Sue Yee said that Maddy’s success was bases on “lots of love and intense training, including sprinting, racing up stairs and swimming.” To all you Brooklynites, apparently, she’s a regular at the dog beach in Prospect Park. Does anyone else hear wedding bells?

I’ll drink to that:

Stranded in a fog of words, Loved him like a small dog bird, On my head the water pours, Gulf stream through the open door. Close your eyes, give me your hand, small dog. Do you feel my heart beating, do you understand? Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming?
