Muriel Siebert, the first woman to hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, bequeathed $100,000 to a friend - for the explicit purpose of caring for her dog, the New York Post reported on Friday.
Siebert, who died recently at 84, never married or had children. She left both the pooch and the money to a friend, the Post reported.
In addition to doling out her $48 million fortune among family and friends, she left most of her millions to her eponymous foundation. Its mission is to support "the furtherance of education in personal financial literacy and the humane support of animals."
Siebert is in good company for wealthy patrons who leave money to their pets. Upon her death in 2007, billionaire real estate tycoon Leona Helmsley left $12 million to Trouble, her poodle.
