Sam Simon’s dog Columbo still grieving owner’s death

Sam Simon, the animal philanthropist and co-creator of the Simpsons who died earlier this week left behind his Italian mastiff Columbo who was at his bedside when he died.

The story of Columbo, we read in a Vanity Fair article was that the 120-pound male and his mother were saved from being put down by Simon. Simon, who died of cancer last Sunday, left most of his $100-million fortune to charity including a foundation to rescue dogs.

Just before Simon died on Sunday afternoon, he saved one last dog, a little guy named after him called Sam. According to a tweet from Tyson Kilmer, Sam was able to deliver to Simon one last kiss hours before his death.

Columbo is now being looked after by Kilmer, a friend of Simon’s and a dog trainer.

Before Simon’s death, Columbo spent time with Kilmer and stayed at his house.  To help Columbo, Kilmer took one of Simon’s sweatshirts and placed it in Columbo’s bed where the dog snuggles with it.

And despite Columbo’s grief, there’s some good news: he now has a girlfriend name Kasha.
