Woman Leaves £1m To Pet Dog In Will, Leaves Nothing To Her Two Sons


Mrs Bolasny, who is sixty years old and works as an accountant in New York, said her pet dog was a “gift from God” and should continue to live a life of luxury once she’s gone. The Telegraph has more:

The dog, who is treated to filet mignon steak for dinner and has her own bedroom with a double bed, is set to inherit jewellery, a trust fund and a holiday home worth around £1m from her adoring owner.

Mrs Bolasny’s two sons, aged 32 and 38, who have been cut out of the will, said they were “quite happy” for the dog to be left their mother’s fortune.

Mrs Bolasny told The Daily Mail: “Prior to [changing my will] I discussed having Bella Mia included in the trust fund with my sons and they totally understood.

“I explained to them that I know they love Bella Mia very much but I wanted to make sure that if anything happens to us she was taken care in the way that she’s used to.

“My sons at that point were not part of that house because it’s a recent purchase.”
