For a dog now named Theo, 2020 wasn’t looking great. The 13-year-old golden retriever was allegedly dumped in a Walmart parking lot earlier this year and had inoperable testicular cancer.
Who would dump a dog in such a state? And a more pressing question: Who would take this elderly dog in, knowing he didn’t have much time left?
Thankfully, an answer to the latter question was found in Jenny Leech of Illinois. According to a video from Good Morning America, she said initially Theo seemed pretty unhappy and shut-down — but after a bath and a new toy, she realized he wasn’t done quite yet.
And if he wasn’t done, she wasn’t done, either.
Leech began compiling a bucket list, and generous internet viewers pitched in to make 2020 Theo’s best year
