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.
Magnum received two wonderful gifts today. One is his new "Miss Piggy". She squeaks and as you can see, she's a bit unraveled already! (This means "enthusiastically loved"!) The other gift is the welcome embrace Magnum receives every day from patients, family, friends and staff at the Hospice Home. From a 10 year old little girl who laughs with delight as she plays with Magnum, to Dedo, Magnum's vibrant and wise grandfather... Magnum is a lucky dog indeed. Thank you all for the gift of sharing your lives with Magnum and allowing him to "show love" and and play with you to his heart's content.
