Golden bones? A room filled with raw steaks? Toilets shaped like oak trees?
These dogs have inherited millions form their wealthy owners and now can afford whatever makes their tails wag.
The top five richest dogs in the world:
#1. Gunther the German Shapherd
Net worth: $150,000,000
Apparently German Countess by the name of Karlotta Liebenstein who left £43m to her dog when she died in 1992.
In July 2000, Madonna sold her eight bedroom Miami villa for 11million to agents acting on behalf of a German Shepherd dog called Gunther IV.
#2. Kalu The Chipanzee
Net worth: around $85,000,000
The former Australian swimming champion, Frank O'Neill, made a pilgrimage to the Sydney Olympics a few years ago - and while he was away his wife decided to leave her fortune to her pet chimp.
Kalu also stole his cigarettes and drank his beer.
#3. Trouble the Maltese
Net worth: about $15,000,000
Leona Helmsley, the woman known as New York's "Queen of Mean", who died aged 87 last week, might have been hell to work for but she sure took good care of her snowy white toy Maltese terrier.
Trouble will live out the rest of her years in some style. In death, she will be reunited with her owner when she is buried by her side in the Helmsley Mausoleum.
#4. Tina And Kate The Collies
Net worth: $7350,000
Nora Hardwell, who died the day before her 90th birthday, ensured her two dogs would live out the rest of their days in luxury by bequesting them the run of her home and five acres of land in Peasedown St John.
Her will stipulated that a carer must be employed to look after the two dogs, and that the house must be kept clean at all times.
#5. Jasper the Mutt
Net worth : about $300,000
Heiress Diana Myburgh, who rescued him and cared for him until she died, aged 74, in 1995.
The dog, aged about 14, now lives in splendor with Mrs Myburgh's former son-in-law, who invested Jasper's initial bequest on the stock market and has seen it increase three-fold.
