Seattle, WA (KCPQ) -

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.

Ferry ride from Seattle to Bremerton: Check.

Eat at the dog-friendly Norm's Eatery and Alehouse: Check.

Have a doggie latte at Lucky Jack's: Check.

Get his very own Facebook page: Check.

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.
