HAGERSTOWN - Buckshot, Katie and Obu-Jet are rolling in the money. When Ken Kemper, the former owner of the dogs, died of cancer last year, the well-heeled hounds inherited a house in Hagerstown and $400,000 from his estate. All together, the tail-wagging trio is worth about $800,000. The dogs live at their house on Marion Street with caretaker Roy Grady. "They get the best care," Grady said. "They don't know they have more money than most people. " When Katie sneaked out the gate last summer and was struck by a car, she received the best medical attention available, including 40 visits to the veterinarian's office to mend her broken legs and hip, Grady said.
