A border collie in Nashville, TN, has inherited $5 million from her owner.

Lulu, 8, was named in the will of Bill Dorris, who died last year at age 84, WTVF-TV reports. Dorris was described as “an unmarried, successful businessman.”

The dog is now with Dorris’s friend Martha Burton, who had long cared for Lulu when Dorris traveled.

The will states that “5,000,000 will be transferred to a trust to be formed upon my death for the care of my border collie Lulu.” It also stipulates: “This trust is to provide for all the needs of Lulu. The dog will remain in possession of Martha Burton.”
