Kicker – A $5 million doggie

NICK EICHER, HOST: A denizen of Tennessee identified only as Lulu is $5 million richer after unexpectedly receiving a massive inheritance.

Lulu has no plans for the money and has shown very little interest in it.

That makes sense considering she’s only 8 years old. But then again, she is 56 in dog years.

Lulu is a border collie, and her owner, Bill Dorris, was so fond of her, he made her the beneficiary of his fortune.

He named his human friend, 88-year-old Martha Burton as caretaker. She told WTVF…

BURTON: I don’t really know what to think about it to tell you the truth. He just loved the dog.

That almost goes without saying.

The will permits Burton to be reimbursed for reasonable caretaking expenses.

I’m guessing $5 million will cover it.
