Most dog owners know their pooches would make friends with just about anyone or anything. If another dog passes by, ol’ Blue’s as likely to give her a cordial sniff and a friendly lick as he would a thief knocking on the front door of the family home. Still, sometimes a dog’s friendliness can stun even the most dedicated dog lovers.
For instance, way up toward the northern tip of Maine, a dog owner and her family had seen their dog shake his tail with delight at the numerous guests that stayed on their family-owned campground. But the dog’s reaction to a surprise visitor on the campground created an unforgettable moment for her entire family!
As an owner and operator of Lugdon Lodge—a family-owned camp in rural Wallagrass, Maine—Shannon Lugdon dealt regularly with animals from the surrounding woods. But in June 2018, she met an animal that truly stood out from the rest.
The calls cutting through the campgrounds belonged to a baby moose! Shannon supposed the little girl was calling out for her mother. After dubbing her Miss Maggie, Shannon decided she was going to help.
