A Wall Street pioneer who died last month bequeathed $100,000 to be used for the care of Monster Girl, her pet Chihuahua, according to CNBC.


Muriel Siebert, aka "The First Woman of Finance," was the first woman to hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. Aside from being known as a financial trailblazer and a philanthropist, Siebert also was an animal lover. Siebert's will directed that $100,000 be given to a friend of hers specifically for Monster Girl's care.

Janet Bradley, ​Siebert's housekeeper, said that Siebert was very close to Monster Girl, and that the dog was "her heart."

Other portions of Siebert's money was left to family and friends, although most will go to her own foundation, which benefits "the furtherance of education in personal financial literacy and the humane support of animals," especially animals "owned by the elderly who are financially challenged."

Siebert also left $10,000 to the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan.

She earned her own money. If that\'s what she wants to spend it on, so be it. I\'ve read about her before. She seems to be a very caring person.

She apparently didn't spend a dime on those disgusting teeth.

Reply to Amihalik88 - Are you serious???? I cannot imagine why it sounds creepy to you. If you love your pet (s) and is responsible it costs money. You obviously have never had a sick pet that needed to see the vet repeatedly and needed medications. They are no different from kids, if you are going to do right by them it is costly.

One hundred thousand is not a massive amount for the care and feeding of this woman's dog.

It is news because she was a frontrunner for change in our financial system. She was a great leader and left her positive mark on many.

Actually, Muriel was always generous to animals while she was alive and left money to causes, including animals in her will.
She was always generous in her time, love and money.

She always shared her time, love and money.

I don\'t understand the negative comments about someone who did so much for so many.

Because people are mean-spirited and have to be upset about something, Judith!
I say Bravo, Muriel! It's her money and she can do what she wants...her money will help society as a whole. ;-)
