New York Chihuahua Now Worth $100,000
New York Magazine ^ | Caroline Bankoff

The money will be looked after by a human friend of Monster Girl's 84-year-old owner, Muriel Siebert, who died in August and left a will "[requesting] that my dog not be left alone for long periods of time during the day," according to the New York Post. Siebert — who made a name for herself by becoming the first woman to buy a seat on the New York Stock Exchange — willed the rest of her $48 million estate to friends and her charitable foundation, which "supports the furtherance of education in personal financial literacy," as well as animals "owned by the elderly who are financially challenged." She also left an additional $10,000 to Manhattan's Animal Medical Center "to be gifted while Monster Girl is still living," so that her canine heiress can also experience the joy of giving to the less fortunate.

my dog not be left alone for long periods of time

I have a little 11 year old chihuahua who has never been left alone for more than 2 hours, day or night. The few times that happened left me with a lot of guilt. These little critters have a special knack of making one pay for leaving them alone.

My guess is that the chihuahua extorted this lady into being so generous. They may be cute but they're also vicious tacticians.

“They may be cute but they’re also vicious tacticians.”

LOL! I bet that sentence has never been written before.

Muriel Siebert was certainly a pioneering business woman, and well known, but I don’t recall hearing her yammer on about it. May she RIP.

At least she left a reasonable legacy for the care of her pet, not like leaving the pup the whole fortune.
