A dog has become a super-rich pet after she was left $5million (£3.6m) in her owner’s will.
Lulu, an eight-year-old border collie, will now live the rest of her life as a pampered pooch thanks to the generosity of Bill Dorris.
Mr Dorris was constantly away from home due to work so Lulu was looked after by his pal Martha Burton.
The 84-year-old, who was an unmarried, successful businessman, died last year and named Lulu as a beneficiary.
The will reads: “$5 million will be transferred to a trust to be formed upon my death for the care of my border collie Lulu.
“This trust is to provide for all the needs of Lulu. The dog will remain in possession of Martha Burton.”
Ms Burton told News Channel 5 : “I don’t really know what to think about it, to tell you the truth. He loved the dog.
“She’s a good girl.”
Ms Burton will continue to look after at her modest home in Nashville using the whopping inheritance which is in a trust fund.
The cash will be released once the paperwork is completed.
Martha, 88, said Lulu loves to play watchdog outside of the home even though she can now afford to hire her own security.
Mr Dorris amassed a vast real estate holdings and investments, it is claimed.
There are no plans to buy Lulu solid gold dog bowl or diamond encrusted collar for Lulu as the will states Ms Burton will be reimbursed for reasonable monthly expenses out of the cash.
She joked there’s no way she could spend all the cash but “she would like to try”.
It has not been made clear what will happen to the rest of the cash when Lulu dies.
