Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:
-purebred-blind

Birthday:
August 28th 2002

Likes:
Soft toys; any kind of food. Laying in the sun; rolling in the wet morning grass.

Pet-Peeves:
Having her blood sugar taken before every meal.

Favorite Food:
Magee loves bananas; only 1 slice a day.

Favorite Walk:
Wherever her people & pack are.

Best Tricks:
Due to glaucoma Magee has eye drops & ointment twice a day. Her best trick is sneaking out the doggi door & into the yard before we can medicate her. Then she runs aways from us as soon as she hears us coming.

Arrival Story:
Topps Sita Magnolia, ThD (aka Magee) has been afflicted with diabetes for the past 3 years. She also went blind from glaucoma. Her pack always help her when we're in a strange location. At home Magee never walks into anything but an occasional dog. Magee is one of the first bullmastiffs to achieve AKC's Therapy Dog Title. Despite her afflictions she still visits her friends in the nursing home & the hospice house once a month. Very sweet & gentle, Magee is an inspiration to all who meet her to just keep going, like Magee's tail.

Bio:
Magee's sugar levels have been monitored very closely for the past 3 years. She gets tested before every meal. We say "Big chair Magee" & she gets up goes into the living room & climbs up in her chair. We take a blood sample from her foreleg; test on the monitor & adjust her insulin. Then when it's time to eat, Magee gets down & practically RUNS into the kitchen, where she does a happy dance while waiting for her bowl.

Here in this house........... I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out there'. I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed. I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat. I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat. I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness, and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose. My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted. Here in this house... There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level. I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand, I can enjoy the warmth of the words. I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many. My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it! Here in this house... I will never be a substitute for anything I am not. I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves. I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should be. I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or stupidity. I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all. If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame. Here in this house... I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch... knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me. If I am ill, I will be doctored. If scared, I will be calmed. If sad, I will be cheered. No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be of value. I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute enough. My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought. I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as dogs. Here in this house... I will belong. I will be home. ~Author Unknown
