Chihuahua's House Sold for $8.4 Million; A Mosque For Mom?

MIAMI BEACH - The home of Gail Posner, an heiress who died in 2010 and left the house and millions of dollars to her chihuahua Conchita, has been sold for $8.4 million. While the dog, and two others, received a $3 million trust fund, and the poochs' human caregivers another $27 million, her son made out with a paltry $1 million, and immediately contested the will. The whereabouts of the dog, where it will live now, or how it will pay for its weekly mani/pedis, are unknown. [Miami Condo Investments]
