Who was Satchel?
Satchel was our founder’s magnificent mahogany Irish Setter.
He was goofy and smart; the only dog she’d ever known who seemed able to actually weigh the consequences of his behavior.
He would look at her, look at whatever it was he desired, decide if he could get to it before she could get to him; determine if it was worth it, then the race was on! Satchel embraced all that came into his life with optimism and acceptance. She was one of only a handful of women traders on the Chicago Board of Trade when she got Satchel; he changed her life. He brought her back down to earth.
Her love for him forced her to live more responsibly. His unbridled enthusiasm for his daily routine was a huge life lesson for her. He showed her that no dog ever has a bad walk; She realized what a great way that is, for all of us, to go through life.
