That's a lot of dog treats!

A Wall Street whiz who died in August has left her precious pooch a big chunk of change in her will: $100,000.

Muriel Siebert, the first woman to hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, died of cancer at the age of 80, and although she never married or had children, she did leave behind a beloved Chihuahua named Monster Girl.

The New York Daily News reports that the dog is now in the care of Siebert's friend Lynda Fox-Frazer, and Siebert bequeathed the money with the written request "that my dog not be left alone for long periods of time during the day."



Siebert also left $10,000 per year to the Animal Medical Center in N.Y.C. for the duration of Monster Girl's life. But the bulk of her $48 million fortune goes to her own nonprofit foundation, which the will states was created to teach people about financial literacy and the humane care of animals, "especially those owned by the elderly who are financially challenged."
