Dachshund Dish

The late Mrs. Astor and Dachshund 'Freddy'

In what may be a final footnote to the glamorous life of New York socialite, civic leader, philanthropist, and Dachshund Lover Brooke Astor, her son, 85-year-old Anthony Marshall has been found guilty of defrauding his mother, and is looking at 25 years in prison.  His trial, which started in March of this year, was riddled with ice cold personal attacks towards all parties involved, from Mr. Marshall, and even to Mrs. Astor, in attempts to discredit her faculties.  Mrs. Astor's recent Dachshunds, 'Boysie' and 'Girlsie,' were referenced often in the trial in regards to how she was caring for them, how Marshall perceived them, as well as several off-the-cuff remarks about them which are a little too tawdry to repeat here. Expect an appeal on the judgment. 

Count your blessings if you're poor like us.  Read more at the New York Post.
