Being a man’s best companion has finally paid off for this dog. In this story, you’ll see how a Tennessee businessman who died last year, left a huge fortune for his border collie to inherit.
Lulu is an eight-year-old Border Collie who is owned by Bill Dorris. Unfortunately, Bill passed away and the police were surprised to find a very interesting clause in the man’s estate. Bill, instead of donating it to charity or a long-lost family member, just left everything to his beloved dog.
According to the police station, the will read that $5 million will be transferred to a trust for the care of his Border Collie, Lulu. The massive inheritance will be distributed by the pooch’s new owner, Martha Burton. Martha was a friend who cared for Lulu when Bill was traveling.
Martha shares that she doesn’t really know what to think about Lulu inheriting an impressive amount of money. All she knew was that Bill really loved the dog. She also adds that Lulu is definitely a good girl, especially to her owner.
Martha, an octogenarian herself, wasn’t surprised that her friend’s estate provided so much for his beloved canine’s care. After all, Lulu was actually the only closest thing her unmarried friend had next to family. But she was astonished by the size of the pooch’s endowment, which is enough to buy all the dog treats for multiple lifetimes.
But even if Lulu is now a millionaire, it doesn’t mean that Martha would be buying lavish gifts for her. The money would then be used to provide for Lulu’s everyday needs.
We’re not quite sure if Lulu knows that she’s hit the jackpot, but what’s important is that she has at least landed in a familiar and loving home. Thank you, Martha, for adopting the adorable Lulu and helping her still live out the rest of her life with love.
