Animal lovers would do anything for their pets so when Marianna Wilson and Elijah Saltzgaber learned their dog’s final day was coming, they gave her a snow day.
Utah, United States (08 October 2021) – After 11 wonderful years, Maggie’s turn to cross the rainbow bridge arrived but not before she could have one final snow day.
Marianna Wilson and Elijah Saltzgaber, the owners of Maggie, made the tough decision to ease her pain and have her put to sleep. Maggie has been battling cancer and it had gotten to the point where her quality of life was not what it once was.
Often families will hold on in hope but sadly there comes a time where the most beautiful thing one can do is say thank you for all the love, companionship and laughter and bid their beloved pet a final sleep tight.
Before Maggie crossed the rainbow bridge, Marianna and Elijah made a plan to recreate her favourite thing, snow!
Living in Utah, Maggie’s love of snow was nurtured from a very young age. Each winter as the snow fell, Maggie would grow excited and run through the flurries. To make this final wish a reality, the Salt Lake County Ice Center sent over buckets of ice shavings so that Maggie could spend her last day doing what she loved most, eating snow.
