When loving dog owner Riina Cooke discovered that a beloved family member had bone cancer, she was devastated. It was Romeo, her 9 year-old boxer. The dog had been with her through thick and thin and Riina wanted to do something special for him in his final days. So, she compiled a special doggie Bucket List for him and helped him, created to make his dreams come true. She documented the entire thing, right up until his final days.

Thankfully, she and Romeo were able to complete it!

Having a great birthday party was just one of the items on the bucket list.
