Feb. 12 (UPI) -- A Tennessee dog is living the comfortable life after inheriting $5 million from her late owner, who stipulated in his will that his money should go to his pet.

Lulu, an 8-year-old border collie, was named in the will of owner Bill Dorris, a Nashville businessman who died late last year at age 84.


Martha Burton, 88, a neighbor who often cared for Lulu while Dorris was away, was named as the canine's caretaker in Dorris' will, which states Burton will be reimbursed for "reasonable" monthly expenses.

"I don't really know what to think about it to tell you the truth. He just really loved the dog," Burton told WTVF-TV.

Burton said she is perfectly happy to act as Lulu's caretaker.

"She's a good girl," she said.
