Buddy the bucket-list dog dies with all items but one ticked off…


A terminally ill dog who captured the hearts of thousands of people after his owner set up a bucket list for his final days has died.

Emily Mochan’s seven-year-old blue heeler Buddy was diagnosed with terminal cancer in January, with vets giving him only four to five weeks to live.

It inspired her to set up a bucket list of all the things she hoped he could experience and she documented it on Facebook to nearly 12,000 followers.

Ms Mochan appeared on 612 ABC Brisbane last month to talk about the list, which had already conquered several entries such as going for a run on the beach, sitting in a police car, going out on a boat, and visiting a spa.

But on Wednesday morning, Buddy passed away.
