Magic was born in April 2019 to COPE’s very own McHappy. Her collar colour was yellow, giving her the nickname of Buttercup. Her official name Magic came from a wonderful sponsor whose husband has been an avid magician since youth. Such a fitting name for the work Magic will be doing in the future.
Once old enough to leave her litter, Magic lived with her temporary foster family at a cottage on Georgian Bay for the summer. Here Magic learned to love boating, swimming, the great outdoors and her basic obedience.
As well as taking part in COPE’s ‘Canines in the Classroom’ and ‘Reading Buddy’ programs, Magic goes to work with her foster dad at a law firm. Clients and staff alike, love having her around. She enjoys sitting with clients and keeping them calm during sometimes stressful meetings. Last
helped a young child who was having a difficult time expressing their feelings. Once sitting with Magic difficult words just came tumbling out. Since then the child has been able to communicate to others more.
Magic loves training! She is very calm, obedient and very willing to please. Her favourite command is ‘down-wait’. Climbing stairs are a challenge for her, but she is working on overcoming her hesitation.
In her free time Magic can be found playing with her orange ball or waking her foster dad up at 6:30 am. Sleeping-in is Magic’s least favourite thing to do.
