Dog Inherits $5 Million From Late Owner
In the Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Entertainment’, a millionaire had bequeathed all his wealth to his pet dog. Now in a real life rerun of the reel caper, a dog in the US has inherited $5 million from her late owner.
Lulu, an eight-year-old Border Collie, was left with the mammoth amount after her owner, Bill Dorris, from Nashville, Tennessee in the US, died last year.
The will of Lulu’s owner states that the money will be transferred to a trust, so that it can be used to take care of her.
According to the BBC, Dorris left the dog in the care of his friend, Martha Burton. The will states that Burton is to be reimbursed for Lulu’s reasonable monthly expenses.
Talking about Lulu’s relationship with Dorris, Burton told News Channel 5: “I don’t really know what to think about it to tell you the truth. He just really loved the dog.”
Right now, it is unclear how much Dorris’ estate is worth, but according to The New York Post, his friends revealed that he owned enormous real estate holdings and investments.
Additionally, the large amount that Lulu has inherited does not mean that she or her new owner get a free pass to spend it to their hearts will. The will simply permits Burton to be reimbursed for reasonable monthly expenses, India Today reported.
