Until we meet again, Beauty.


Last night my parents and I had to make the hardest decision when you own a pet. Beauty could no longer move her back legs and we had to make the decision to have Beauty put to sleep. For those of you who never met Beauty, I adopted her while in college at Point Park. She was quickly the PPC mascot, attending all the parties and was often seen roaming about friends houses. When I left to live in NYC, my mom and dad took over Beauty's care and she has lived there since. Beauty was 13 years old and lived a very full life.
Till we meet again, Beauty.

OMG...I remember when Beauty came on the scene. I am crying as I type this, as you know 'my girls' are my kids. I know she lived a wonderful life, and what a long one it was- 13 years. That is a blessing being able to have a pet for that long. If we could only keep them forever...
