A local shelter is asking for your help to make the very best of a handsome hound's last days.
Smoke is a 10-year-old hound mix living at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.
The shelter announced on its Facebook page on Thursday that it recently found out Smoke has terminal cancer.
But Smoke isn't going to sit around waiting for a home. Thanks to his shelter caretakers, he is going to be busy living the good life while he can.
They've created a bucket list for him that includes eating ice cream, taking a trip to the beach, getting a "full body doggie massage," meeting Santa, riding in a convertible — and the list goes on.
Check out the full list:
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

Ride in a police car and bay with the sirens

The shelter is asking anyone who can help fulfill some of the activities on Smoke's bucket list to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-931-9241.
The bucket list is also a way to get the word out in the hopes of finding him a home.
People interested in adopting or fostering Smoke can visit the shelter on 2650 S. Arlington Mill Dr. anytime during business hours.
