Recently, the first women to be on the New York Stock Exchange, Muriel Siebert, passed away at age 84. Siebert left her longhaired Chihuahua, Monster Girl, a rather large inheritance. Monster Girl was left with Siebert's friend Lynda Fox Frazer, with $100,000 to pay for Monster Girl's care. Siebert also left an instruction that Monster Girl should not be left alone for too long throughout the day.
Siebert also ensured that Monster Girl would receive the best medical care. She left the Animal Medical Center $10,000 monthly during Monster Girl's lifetime. Animal treatment was important to Siebert. As a result, she left $48 million dollars to her foundation to educate people about the "humane support of animals.”
