Doggie Bucket List

The Bucket List is a comedy-drama starting Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The movie is about 2 terminally ill men going on a road trip with a wish list of things to do before they "kick the bucket".

Here's a list of things that Gus and Waldo have done in their lifetime, as well as what remains on their "bucket list":

Things I have done in my doggie lifetime:
  • Gone swimming in a lake
  • Rolled in rabbit poop repeatedly..and it smells SOOO good!
  • Entered (and won!) a costume contest
  • Entered (and placed!) in an online Dog Show
  • Gone swimming at the local pool
  • Kissed a girl
  • Ate mommee's leather shoes
  • Had fleas
  • Had a birthday cake
  • Chased the geese
  • Ran around the neighborhood without mommee's knowledge

Things I have done in my doggie lifetime:
  • Chased squirrels around my backyard
  • Gone swimming at the local pool
  • Entered (and won!) a costume contest
  • Entered (and won!) an online dog show
  • Chased birds at the park
  • Gone on a long car trip to visit my Grandma Klimis
  • Lost all of my hair
  • Re-grew all of my hair
  • Dug holes in our backyard
  • Ate Thanksgiving dinner from the trashcan
  • Consumed 19 cupcakes in one sitting

Things we would like to do before we go to the Rainbow Bridge:
  • Go swimming in the ocean
  • Have a birthday party with all of our friends
  • Learn to be service doggies
  • Go hiking in the mountains
  • Waldo--go swimming in the lake
  • Have a steak and sweet potato meal

What about you? Do you have a list of things that you would like to do before you "kick the bucket"?

Hey maties
We've been swimming in the ocean and highly recommend it. We like your bucket list.
You've done lots of things already. Good going pals.

We'd like to try swimming in the ocean - a real one and not the MinneSNOWta ocean.

Hi, Gus & Waldo...

I went to the Ocean once...Does that count??

The only thing I really want to do is catch a Squirrel...It's like my mission in life...

My Mom says I wouldn't like it if I caught one, cuz it would bite me...But I really, really want to...

A bucket list is a funny idea....I have lots of things that I would add to mine like getting a little sister, eating a whole block of cheese, and learning how to open doors so I can get into the treat closet! ;)

Thunder and Phantom would like to be able to pull a sled in lots of snow. Dakota would like to feel better and always have a full dish of yummy food.

Nice bucket lists woo two have.

Hi friends , what a neat bucket list! So cool. And I hope all your wishes come true.
I think i would like a steak bone and eat it in private and a whole bowl of popcorn to eat in private too! no rules!

Mango said...

What's the ocean?

That steak and sweet potato should be manageable.
