Maggie Cares: A New Pet Therapy Blog Feature

My name is Maggie, and I’m honored to be featured as the online pet therapy dog for THA Group’s Island Hospice. I’ll be visiting you through the “blogosphere” to bring you a little cheer and brighten your day.

I’m a 7 year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. I began working as a therapy dog in 2009 as a “Healing Hound,” providing comfort and affection to many wonderful people in a Connecticut hospital. I’ve been told that my presence has helped to reduce stress, improve moods, and even lower blood pressure.

Thank you for visiting my blog feature! I promise you tips, quips, quotes and photos that I hope will make you smile.
