Here’s a feel-good blurb from the March 20, 2009 issue of The Week.

It wasn’t all bad.
Kenneth Munzert of Baltimore had no close relatives. As he grew old, he feared he would outlive his German shepherd, Beauregard, and that no one would be there to care for his dog. Beauregard ended up dying shortly before Munzert did last year, at 88. Nonetheless, in his will Munzert directed that his $1 million home be auctioned off, and the proceeds donated to care for dogs whose owners have died. Munzert left an additional $700,000 to animal charity groups. “Ken was just the sort of pet owner that he wished everyone would be,” said a local SPCA spokesman.
