1st woman member of NYSE leaves $100K for her dogs

NEW YORK (AP) -- The will of the first woman to become a member of the New York Stock Exchange has left $100,000 for the care of her dogs.

Documents made public Friday in Manhattan Surrogate Court show Muriel "Mickie" Siebert also requested that her pets not be left alone for long periods during the day. Siebert died last month at age 84. She was founder and president of a brokerage firm that bears her name.

Most of her nearly $50 million estate she left to the Muriel F. Siebert Foundation, which promotes finance education. She left $1.5 million in a trust for her sister; money and jewelry to friends; and airline miles to the executors of her estate.

Hotel magnate Leona Helmsley left $12 million to her dog Trouble after her 2007 death.
