This Man Is On An Incredible Journey With His Dying Dog To Complete Their 81-Item Bucket List.Ashley Maisano
Todd Burchanowski, of Erie, Pennsylvania, received the devastating news that his furry best friendâ€™s life would be cut short due to terminal cancer. So, he made a bucket list of 81 things for him and his 8-year-old dog Reyes to experience together before she leaves Earth. His goal is to make her last days as fun-filled as possible. And heâ€™s doing a great job at it!
Watching a sunset on the beach, taking a relaxing bubble bath, building a snowman, eating french fries, visiting Niagara Falls, helping with the weather forecast on TV, and even having a mock dog wedding, are just a few of the many things off their bucket list that theyâ€™ve already accomplished. Todd says this whole experience has helped him change his life for the better; he no longer wants to live the stagnant life his day-to-day routine had become.
â€śI want people to see this dog as just the beautiful dog that she is and how happy she has made me,â€ť said Todd. â€śI hope that during this process she can put a smile on someoneâ€™s face like the eight years that she has always put a smile on my face. The bucket list is really for her and in the end, the support has really helped me out throughout an unbelievably tough time.â€ť Well, Reyes and Todd have definitely brought a big smile to my face, as well as tears to my eyes. I am glad that Reyes as an owner as loving as Todd to make the last of her days as amazing as possible!!
