Mister Molson, a Golden Retriever, was diagnosed with terminal cancer back in March.

Tim Griffin, the owner, thought that it would be nice for him and his kids, Chloe, 10, and Elliot, 8, to come up with a bucket list for Mr. Molsen to compensate for all the love Mr. Molsen gave them over the span of his 12 years of life.

Griffin intended to create as many memorable moments as possible for both Mr. Molson and his human children.

A blog titled “Mr. Molsen’s Adventures” was created by Griffin to commemorate Mr. Molsen’s adventures. Griffin also invited the public to share their ideas with him so that he could put it on the bucket list.

Below are the few precious moments Molsen experienced during the last several months of his life.

#1 Enjoying the first ride in my life with a 1927 Jaguar convertible!


#2 Ain’t no other dog more fly than me!


#3 “Ooo look dad, Chloe made breakfast for us! It smells delicious!”


#4 The family thought it would be a great idea to sleep on the ground with Mr. Molson during his first camping trip


#5 A honorary Pennsylvania State Trooper doggo can’t always be too serious, eh?


#6 Making new friends sure seems fun!


Elliot thought it would be a great idea for Mr. Molson to look like the official Budweiser Clydesdale Dalmatian as they got to meet the Budweiser Clydesdales.

#7 Don’t I look dashing in my wedding suit? Come meet my wife!


An excerpt of Mr. Molson’s dad also gave a speech during the wedding is as follows:

“May we always be bold enough to chase that elusive squirrel, or other personal goal.  May we always be willing to quickly forgive someone who steps on our tail or otherwise wrongs us.  May we always be willing to speak up if someone looks shady.  May we always be open to learning new tricks no matter how old we get.  May we always be curious and willing to explore new territory even if we’ve been sprayed by a skunk before.  And may we always have room in our hearts for new friends.”

The local news station, WPMT FOX43, decided to surprise him and his family by recording a live video on Mr. Molson eating a steak dinner and broadcasting it on television.
