The story of Maggie and Jay

SHREWSBURY

Don't miss the Globe West story and Internet slide show today about Maggie, a golden retriever from Shrewsbury. Maggie is a therapy dog who makes the rounds every Wednesday comforting the sickest young patients at the UMass Memorial Medical Center.

Now 9-year-old Maggie is sick herself -- diagnosed with a late-stage cancer -- and will undergo radiation treatment to save her life.
