Movie icon Lauren Bacall has left $10,000 (£5,880) for the care of her beloved dog in her will. The 89-year-old actress died in Manhattan, New York earlier this month (Aug14) and left behind a $26.6 million (£15.6 million) estate. According to the New York Daily News, her grandsons will inherit $250,000 (£147,000) each, two longtime employees will share $35,000 (£20,500) and her papillon, Sophie, will be taken care of thanks to a $10,000 (£5,880) lump sum. Papers were filed on Friday (22Aug14) in Manhattan Surrogate's Court. The rest of her estate, including her apartment in the Dakota building and its contents, will be split between her three children, Leslie Bogart, Stephen Humphrey Bogart and Sam Robards, who will become the dog's guardian. Her kids have also been named the executors of her estate, and they will take charge of the actress' likeness rights, although in the will, signed late last year (13), Bacall stipulated, "I request that my children respect my wish to keep private certain personal letters, writings, diaries and other papers or memorabilia."
