Owner Of Terminally Ill Dog Wrote Up An Amazing Bucket List, Is Checking Off All 27 Of These Amazing Items


All aboard the feels train: ‘Buddy’s Bucket List’ is a list of 27 items that Buddy (a Blue Heeler dog from Australia) and his owner will complete over the coming days, already the two best of friends have completed 8 of the 27 items on the bucket list. You see, six-year-old Buddy the Blue Heeler is terminally ill with cancer and his days are numbered. Buddy and his owner, Emily Mochan, are the best of friends. If you own dogs or are a dog person then you know how amazing the bond can be between a dog and its owner. This badass bucket list, ‘Buddy’s Bucket List’, is truly a testament to that.

Before we get to what items are on the bucket list (below) I’d just like to note that there’s a Facebook page for Buddy’s Bucket List, so if you’re interested in following Buddy the Blue Heeler’s march to complete the list you can get on that by liking that page (page/pics below as well).

Now for the items on Buddy’s Bucket List:

So first up, this list is amazing and if I had terminally ill cancer myself my bucket list would probably look nearly identical to Buddy’s Bucket List. I’d want to eat a gourmet burger, an entire link of sausage, a steak. I’d want to go boating and hit up the dog beach. I’d like to visit the dog spa because that sounds fun, and you know what? I’ve never met my postman.

Frankly, I can’t invest too much thought into this because it makes me think how I’ll react when my own dog dies one day. She’s the best, just look at how fucking cute this pup is:

It’s just refreshing to know that this dog’s last days will be spent doing awesome things and getting showered with attention. And if you’re wondering the answer is no, I’m not crying, it’s just dusty in here.
