Graduation Day: A Proud Big Sis

I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about dogs. That makes sense, because dogs are the reason why I started a blog.  But the blog also makes a nice platform to every once in a while celebrate something else, non-dog related.

Today my little sister, Elisa, will walk across the stage at Clemson University’s graduation ceremony, a semester earlier than her peers. She is graduating with honors, earning a degree in Animal and Veterinary Science.

Elisa has spent her three and a half years at Clemson, for lack of a better term, kicking butt. She was the vice president and then president of Clemson’s Intercollegiate Eventing Team, she worked as a lab technician doing cutting-edge research, and she maintained phenomenal grades in even the hardest of science classes.  Elisa and I share a love for horses, though she certainly ended up with the science brain.

I’m so proud of my little sister, and I’m so happy I can be with her today to watch her collect her college diploma. Otis is also proud of her, and wanted to display his Tiger pride since he cannot attend graduation with us:

Congrats, Lis! We love you!
