Utah Dog Gets One Last Snow Day Thanks To Local Ice Rink


Touching story out of Utah where an act of kindness helped a pair of dog owners check the last box off their dog’s final bucket list. Marianna Wilson and Elijah Saltzgaber dreaded the day when they would have to say goodbye to their beloved 11-year-old dog Maggie after she was diagnosed with cancer in July.

Knowing her time was short, Maggie’s owners composed a bucket list of things to do to make the most of Maggie’s final days. Activities included things like going camping and paddleboarding. Maggie also served as the couple’s ring bearer during their wedding ceremony, but one final item on her bucket list seemed impossible this time of year….enjoying her last snow day. Maggie loved the snow so Wilson and Saltzgaber brainstormed how to get their hands on some in September in Utah.

Somebody suggest they call an ice rink, so they got in touch with the Salt Lake County Ice Center. The rink collected ice shavings from its Zamboni machine and snow delivered to Maggie’s yard so she could spend one more day in the element she loved.

Maggie looked like the goodest of girls. May she play endlessly in snow up in doggo heaven.

WARNING: Tearjerker

“This weekend, a resident contacted our Salt Lake County Ice Center seeking a little snow for their dying dog, Maggie, to play in one last time.
Today, our staff shaved some extra ice, loaded it into bins and buckets, and the owner took the snow home, to Maggie’s backyard, where she enjoyed it with her family. Sending our love and condolences to Maggie’s family. We appreciate the unique privilege of providing her a little heaven on earth.”
