Kodie & Maggie: 300 Pounds of Pure Love

Kodie and Maggie were dropped off at the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center in Castle Rock in December 2008. In January 2009, we were in search of ONE dog for our family. When we first set our eyes on beautiful Maggie, a St. Bernard, we stated we would take her.

We were informed by the staff that “she comes with her brother,” who was in the back eating at the time. We reconsidered, thinking two St. Bernards would be a bit much. Of course, we caved as soon as we saw this 165-pound dog named Kodie walk into the room. Because it was such a big commitment, the staff suggested we think about it. We returned the next day to pick them up, loading 300 pounds of St. Bernard in the back of an SUV.

They have been a wonderful and quite large addition to our family. We relocated to the East Coast in 2013. Kodie and Maggie did much better than we did driving across the country! They are happy and healthy “lap dogs.” They make us laugh all the time.

I know we made a difference in their lives, but they made an even bigger difference in ours! Thank you, Dumb Friends League, for taking such good care of them while in your care.
