Maggie - January 09, 2016


Maggie, beloved dog of the Ruane and Mudlock families, passed away unexpectedly Saturday evening.  She would have celebrated her 10th birthday on January 28th. 

Maggie was loved by everyone who knew her, and she was affectionally known to many as Pittston's dog.  Maggie served many years as a comfort dog for the funeral home, was a caretaker and constant companion to Sox, Mary, and Laura, and spent many hours at the Pittston Ambulance and Firehouse. 

In 2008, she was awarded the Hero of the Year Award by Geisinger after she saved Sox's life.  In the future, she will be added to the mural in Pittston in the window next to Sox.
