American Man Leaves $5 Million To His Beloved Border Collie Lulu

American Man Leaves $5 Million To His Beloved Border Collie Lulu

An eight-year-old border collie has been left $5,000,000 (£3.6 million) after her owner died, making her immediately one of the richest dogs in the world, you'd have to imagine.

OK, the statistics on the personal wealth of dogs might not be that readily available, or measured in tennis balls and chew toys, but Lulu the border collie has to be right up there, surely.

Lulu's owner Bill Dorris died unmarried at the age of 84 recently, and in his will it was stipulated that $5,000,000 of his personal cash be transferred to Lulu, and - more importantly - her new owner, Martha Burton.

This doesn't mean that Martha, or Lulu for that matter, can simply live a life of luxury now.

The money has been set aside for reasonable expenses for Lulu's upkeep, and what constitutes those expenses will be decided upon by a conservator.

It's not immediately clear what will happen to the money when Lulu eventually dies - hopefully a long way into the future - but for now, she is hanging out with her old friend Martha.

The two have been together for years, as 88-year-old Martha says she often looked after Lulu when her true owner couldn't.

Martha, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee, told News Channel 5: "Well, he always left the dog for me to take care of."

There's no malice in that, though. Martha added: "Yes, she's a good girl.

"Oh yes. He loved that dog."

When asked about what she reckons to the whole thing, Martha reiterated: "I don't really know what to think about it to tell you the truth. He just really loved the dog."

According to his friends, Bill Dorris had a load of real estate holdings and investments, which is what has allowed him to leave such a generous amount to his beloved pet.

The will states: "$5,000,000 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."

All the needs of Lulu probably mean that any extravagant purchases for Martha are off the cards. When asked about whether she could spend the money, even if she was allowed, she replied: "Well, I'd like to try."

However, the good news is that Lulu will never go hungry, or need another chew toy, for as long as she lives.
