Rosenthal in Manhattan was not immediately returned. Someone answering the phone at Panzirer’s home in Westchester said he was not home. The dog is currently living at the Helmsley’s Connecticut estate, being cared for by staffers at the 28-room mansion. It was also Helmsley’s wish that Trouble someday be interred with her at the Helmsley mausoleum at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. It seems trouble is following Trouble, Leona Helmsley’s beloved pooch. The late hotelier left the 8-year-old Maltese $12 million and asked her brother to see to it that her pampered canine live out her life in the lap of luxury. But apparently that brother, Alvin Rosenthal, to whom Helmsley left $15 million and a percentage of her charitable trust, is not interested. The New York Post, citing an unidentified source, reported Tuesday that Rosenthal, 80, expressed no interest in caring for Trouble. Whether her grandson David Panzirer, Helmsley’s second choice, would step in was not known. last_img
