This ridiculously handsome hound is Smoke, a ten-year-old guy we’ve had here at AWLA for about a month. Yesterday, we got some sad news about Smoke - he has terminal cancer. We don’t know how long Smoke has left with us - it could be six months, or it could be just a few weeks. What we do know is that Smoke deserves to live the rest of the time he has left in a home, with a family that loves him. We are hoping that someone will come and adopt this big, goofy boy and give him as much love as they can during his last weeks and months. Until that time comes, we are starting a Bucket List for Smoke! We hope to start crossing items off his bucket list now, and that whoever adopts him will keep it going. Here’s what we have on his Bucket List so far: - find a forever family - go on a hike - eat ice cream - go to the beach - have a birthday party - ride in a fire truck - eat a cheeseburger - have breakfast in bed - meet a celebrity - ride in a police car and bay with the sirens - get a fully body doggie massage - go camping - meet Santa - be on TV - jump in a big pile of leaves - get a professional photoshoot - go on a road trip - get his own Instagram account - ride in a convertible - get a huge box of toys to play with and share with his shelter friends! - Visit Washington Nationals Park (maybe throw the first pitch?) So, please, help us spread the word about Smoke by telling all your friends and family. We are looking for an adopted for Smoke, but would also be open to a fospice home, where he would stay with a foster family until his condition worsens. You can come visit Smoke anytime during our regular business hours! Of course, we would also love for you to help us fulfill his bucket list! If you think you can help us cross of an item on his list, please let us know. Questions? PM us or email! #SmokesBucketList #FindSmokeAHome

I love this story about Smoke, the hound dog at the Animal Welfare League in Arlington.

Smoke arrived at the shelter a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, he has terminal cancer.

The staff at the shelter is working hard to make sure he enjoys his final days.

Some of the things on Smoke's bucket list:

--riding on a fire truck

--getting a full-body doggie massage

--visiting Nationals Park

--meeting Santa Claus

The item at the top of Smoke's bucket list is finding a forever family to spend his final days with. Fortunately, Smoke is not showing any signs of pain. He could have six months to live, or maybe a few weeks.

Watch the video and see more of Smoke's bucket list.
