(Newser) – You dogs, you. Three happy Maryland pooches have a new leash on life now that their owner has died and left them assets worth $800,000. Buckshot, Katie, and Obu-Jet—a beagle and two Labrador mixes—were strays when their well-heeled owner adopted them in 2002. They currently spend their days lounging in their own home tended to by a personal caretaker.

Once a week they're treated to a spaghetti-and-meatball dinner—with garlic bread. "They love it," said their caretaker. It hasn't all been dog biscuits, though. Katie was hit by a car last summer. But she's better now, thanks to $6,000 worth of vet care.
