  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

These are the heart-breaking - and often hilarious - touching photographs of one woman helping her dog carry out his 'bucket list' before he sadly had to be put to sleep. Riina Cooke, 32, from British Columbia, Canada, was left devastated when her best friend, boxer dog Romeo, nine, was diagnosed with inoperable bone cancer by vets.

  • If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

Brilliant, but so sad knowing the dog will soon be dying. But the dog is obviously loved dearly, well done that lady and her partner.
Love the fire engine pics, but all are great.

I thought it was extremely nice of the police, fire, etc people letting her do this with their equipment...

Nice people...

Many dogs actually like beer.  I'm glad Romeo got the chance to try it!

Sweet story.  That's how much people can grow to love their four footed friends.

People go above and beyond to support a cause. Look at when San Francisco helped a young boy to become Batman for a day!
