Dogs Lose Helmsley Fortune

This will have the dogs howlin’: According to the Associated Press, the trustees of the estate of Leona Helmsley, who had said before her death she wanted her fortune to go entirely to dog-related charities, have decided to give $136 million to charity, only $1 million of which will be going to the hounds. That $1 million will be divided equally among 10 animal-rights charities, while the largest grant, $40 million, went to a digestive diseases center in New York. Helmsley had named her dog, Trouble, as her beneficiary before her death, but a judge ruled in February that trustees for the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust had sole authority to give away her money.
