  Dogs inherit 450,000 from owner
Updated 22 July 2004, 13.21

Collie dogs Tina and Kate will spend the rest of their lives living in luxury after their owner left them a whopping 450,000 in her will.

At 10 and 12-years-old, the pair are getting on a bit, but their every wish in their old age will be granted thanks to their massive bank account.

The dogs' owner, Norah Hardwell, died aged 89 in 2002, but details of her will have only just been released.

The dogs will be cared for by Norah's gardener at their home in Bath.

Norah gave more than half of her 800,000 fortune to her pets.

She also made big donations to charities including the Animal Health Trust, the Royal National Institute For The Blind and Cancer Research Campaign.

Norah's gardener, who still tends her home, told the local newspaper: "All she lived for were her dogs. They were her life."
