Oscar the corgi crosses final item off his bucket list – meeting another corgi


A Duluth family is helping their dog complete a bucket list created for him after he was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Oscar the corgi has gone for a swim in Lake Superior, paddled in a kayak, crossed the lift bridge and has eaten lots of ice cream, reports note.

And on Saturday, Oscar the corgi got to cross off the final item on his bucket list: meeting another corgi, WDIO says.

But he didn't just meet one. Oscar had a play date with about 20 other corgis after getting an overwhelming response to a callout on Facebook for a corgi meet-up.

"It's been a phenomenal thing and something we'll always remember," Tom Asbury, Oscar’s owner, told FOX 21.

In July, Oscar went into the vet for a teeth cleaning when it was discovered the 11-year-old pooch had an aggressive form of cancer, and chemotherapy treatments would actually make him sicker instead of prolonging his life, ABC News reports.

He was given about six months to live, so his owners made a bucket list for their beloved pooch.

The family called Saturday's corgi turnout "remarkable," with Tom Asbury telling WDIO that "it's really happy, but it's also really sad ... it's his last thing."


Oscar's story has garnered international attention, being featured by news outlets across the country and as far away as Australia.
