Some of you may remember our story about Maggie, the therapy dog who visited sick children at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester -- and came down with cancer herself.
Mike Kewley of Boylston, owner of the golden retriever, reports that she is no longer undergoing chemotherapy.
"I had to stop the treatment because of the side effects," he wrote in a recent e-mail.
Maggie has cancer of the snout, which has forced her to suspend her work visiting sick children at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
Kewley said Maggie is on a strict chicken and rice diet.
She is scheduled to begin radiation therapy next month.
He hopes she will be well enough to resume her hospital visits in December.
