I saw this on our local news' website.  Jake is a local dog who was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and given only two to four months to live.  He was enrolled in a clinical trial at CSU and lived until January 2011.  His owner Mike decided at the time of diagnosis to make the most of his remaining time with Jake and came up with a bucket-list of places he wanted to go with Jake.  He took over 12,000 pictures of their adventures and created a website www.thatsoftdog.blogspot.com.

I haven't had a chance yet to read all of it, but the last two posts are pretty special.
