Lulu, an 8-year-old border collie from Nashville, Tennessee has just inherited a large amount of money after her owner Bill Dorris passed away – $5 million!
Bill Dorris was a very successful business investor and Lulu was the love of his life. He loved his dog beyond measure but unfortunately, he traveled a lot and was always away from her a big chunk of the time.
While Bill was out on business trips, his 88-year-old friend Martha Burton was happy to take Lulu under her watch and make sure she was well taken care of while he was gone. Lulu was very comfortable around Martha and after Bill passed, Lulu just stayed with her.
As the family gathered around to read Bill’s will, they were very astonished to find out that Bill left the dog millions. He wanted to make sure she would never need for anything. “He loved that dog,” Burton said.
The will read, “Five million dollars will be transferred to a trust to be formed upon my death for the care of my border collie, Lulu,” WVLT reported.
Martha said she doesn’t think there is any way she could ever spend the $5 million but says Lulu is a happy dog and is expected to live a very loved life.
