This Dog Received A Very Dark Diagnosis…But That Isn’t Stopping Him From Living Out His Dreams! Amazing!
When we receive bad news, we think about all of things the things we could have done with our lives. Having a timer set on the rest of our time here on Earth is something that most people hope will never happen because, well, it’s scary to think about. The idea of a bucket list is a comforting thought. It’s a way to say, “hey, this world is pretty neat and I want to complete this list of things before I die.” For the most part, even if we complete only a handful of those items, we fill very fulfilled. The world is a big place, and even a small ounce of adventure is enough to tide us over for years.
This rescued dog, Roosevelt, was diagnosed with bone cancer. His first owners dropped him off at a local shelter when they found that he had problems urinating. They couldn’t afford to keep him, so they were forced to give him up. It was a sad time for everyone involved, but Roosevelt was soon spotted by this adventure-loving couple that feel in love with him instantly – even giving him the nickname “Roo”! While he was in and out of the doggy hospital, they received the sad diagnosis. Their beloved Roo had cancer, and he didn’t have that much longer to live.
For Roo’s sake, they decided to take him along on all of their adventures! They gave it a hashtag (a way to track all of the posts on social media) #LiveLikeRoo to show that although life is short, it is beautiful and you should make the most of your time on this Earth! This dog loves his new humans, and they sure do love their new dog!
