Leaves $5 Million in his Will for His Dog


Maybe having a dog’s life isn’t so bad. If you had the money, would you leave $5 million to care for your dog(s)?

Bill Dorris, was a successful businessman in Tennessee, who wasn’t married and died late last year. His will states the money should be put into a trust for his Border Collie, Lulu’s, care. It allows for his long-time friend Martha Burton to be reimbursed for reasonable monthly expenses in the care of Lulu.  How will she even spend $5 million? Lulu is 8-years old, and will no doubt be very spoiled for the remainder of her life.
