Edward Carter is making the most of the time he has left. The 4-year-old Chinese Crested/Maltese mix has terminal cancer and with the help of Motley Zoo Animal Rescue in Redmond, he's checking off his bucket list.

It's easy to understand why Edward wants to take advantage of his final days. In September 2013, the pup was dropped off at a local animal shelter as a stray. Once the shelter realized he had cancer, the staff could have easily decided to euthanize him. Instead, they reached out to Motley Zoo to find Edward a loving foster home where he could spend the rest of his short life.
A veterinarian has since confirmed Edward is a very sick boy with stage 5 lymphoma. He's currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments to lengthen his life as much as possible.
