#GoodNews: Utah Ice Rink Helps Grant Wish For Dying Dog

An ice-skating center in Utah helped grant a family's last wish for their dying dog.

On September 24, Elijah Saltzgaber posted a call for help on social media asking if anyone has a shaved ice machine.

"Our sweet dog Maggie is passing of cancer and on Monday we want to build her one last snowbank to roll in," he said.

The request made its way to the Salt Lake County Ice Center, a year-round, indoor ice skating facility. They quickly went to work to make Maggie's dying wish come true.

"It's not always about skates and hockey pucks at County Ice Center. Today was a bitter sweet day, as we had an opportunity to help make a difference for a very special dog, Maggie. This morning we filled bins, buckets and the back of his van with the ice shavings from the rink. Maggie enjoyed her last morning with her two favorite things, snow and her owners."

On September 27, Maggie got to enjoy the snow one last time.
