Farewell to Maddie


Exactly 11 years ago today, I brought a teeny, tiny puppy to a BBQ in a laundry basket. She jumped and ran everywhere, sniffed everything and saw the world with the brightest of eyes.

She was the unofficial mascot of KTVX, the ABC Station in Salt Lake City where I was the primary news anchor from 2009-2012.  She would welcome everyone, lick our Assistant News Director’s legs to say hi, and constantly barked at Ross Becker, my co-anchor at the time, for no reason at all.

Today, she went to see Poppy in Heaven.  Here, a small tribute to a shining star in a world that sometimes makes no sense.

She added context to troubled times.  She helped the world make sense.  Everyone who has met her was touched by her love in some way.  Maddie will be missed.
