Welcome to Magnum’s Blog!
Magnum is a Facility Dog and Therapy Dog with CHAMP Assistance Dogs. Magnum has quite a story to tell from his puppy days in Maximum Security Prison to his current work with the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Victim Services Unit.
Magnum cared for people for 5 wonderful years at Relais Bonne Eau Hospice Home. He continues to serve as a Therapy Dog for Hospice of Southern Illinois.
We look back at 2012 and have many beautiful memories. We so try to bring joy in all we do for Hospice of Southern Illinois. There are times when our goal is comfort and Magnum somehow knows just when to give hugs, kisses and show love to people in need. Thank you all for sharing your lives with Magnum. No matter what our connection is to you, we are thankful for your support, encouragement and prayers as we continue to work to enhance the quality of life for people touched by terminal illness.
This past week, Magnum spent a wonderful afternoon at Relais Bonne Eau with Miss Ramona from the Suburban Journals. He told her all about hospice care. As a journalist, she asked alot of questions to learn what Magnum does for our patients, family and staff at the Hospice Home. The answer is: "He brings them comfort and joy!" Miss Ramona also learned that Hospice is about LIVING! Magnum gave her a tour of the hospice home. We can't wait to read her article. Thanks to Miss Ramona, many more people will learn about the wonderful services being provided by Hospice of Southern Illinois.
