We rescued Maggie in the spring of 1999. She comforted Max, our first therapy dog, through his last few months. We knew at that time she was special. In the fall Maggie began her journey as certified as a therapy dog. Maggie enjoyed her work on the pediatric floor, sitting with the children on their beds or walking with those who could go with her for walks in the halls. She was a ham when she did a commercial with Dr. First. In June, 2004, Maggie was honored by the Vermont Veterinary Medical Association where she received the “Professional Dog of the Year Award.” Maggie last task was this November where she gave all her love to the students at Marshall Hall at UVM. She will be remembered.
