Princess was euthanized Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014 after arthritis made it impossible for the 26-year-old animal to stand, said Bergmann, just weeks before the state is set to host its first Super Bowl. Princess correctly picked the Baltimore Ravens in last year's Super Bowl. Her best run came in the 2008 season, when she picked 17 of 22 games correctly, including the Pittsburgh Steelers to win Super Bowl XLIII.
