Watching Abby Run to Meet the Horizon in Ashburnham, Massachusetts
The Maguire House Bed and Breakfast is only a morning's drive from Boston and ten minutes from the old mill city of Fitchburg, but its 44 secluded acres are a world apart. As you nestle into a recliner on the sprawling mahogany porch, bustling woodpeckers at Terry's feeder offer hours of entertainment. Only the heartless settle in for a nap, though, since golden retriever Abby has other plans—she comes armed with ball and thrower to welcome every guest. Watch her dash off toward the lake at the edge of your vision, and steal inside for a fresh-baked scone before she comes back.
