Terminally Ill Dog Gets Married To Fulfill Bucket List Wish

A Pennsylvania family held a wedding ceremony for their terminally ill dog as part of their quest to fulfill the pet’s “bucket list.”  Mr. Molson, the 12-year-old Golden Retriever, donned a tux his family ordered online as he was wed to Josie, a black lab in a white frilly dress, before the two shared a cake made of dog treats.  Prior to his wedding day, Mr. Molson was diagnosed with soft-tissue cancer in March and was given three months to live.  “We’re trying to make every day count,” Mr. Molson’s owner, Tim Griffin, said.  “He’s just somebody who’s always been there for me.”  Griffin and his two children devised multiple bucket list quests for their beloved pet, including taking rides in a firetruck and a police car, swimming in the ocean, eating a snake, sharing a beer with his owner and his doggie wedding.  According to Griffin, Mr. Molson has remained energetic throughout his bucket list journey, despite nearing the end of his time.  The Griffins still have plans to take Mr. Molson sailing, stay in a dog-friendly hotel together and let him try a Coney Island hot dog.
