Women Adopt Dog With Terminal Cancer To Give Him Happiest Final Months Of Life

Sarah Launch and Kelly Michael rescued 5-year-old Roosevelt from the Chicago Animal Care and Control after he was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer.
She has no idea how his first five years of life were, but she is confident that the next six months will be fantastic!
After receiving a call from her friend Kelly Michael, Sarah, an executive producer at Comcast, fostered Roosevelt AKA Roo.

“We knew something wasn’t right, but we couldn’t figure out what.” “She called to say he only had six months,” Lauch choked out.

“We’re going to make it the best six months of his life,” the two decided.

So the two made a bucket list for him and documented and shared his story on social media using the hashtag #LiveLikeRoo to encourage other people to take their dogs on adventures.

They did their best to fulfill all of his final wishes, including receiving therapeutic massages, eating at Taco Bell, and getting ice cream, which was his favorite snack.

They take him to Tastee Freeze for ice cream, he goes hiking in Starved Rock State Park, and he even eats meat, despite Kelly’s refusal to do so.

Roo does not appear to be ill and is very active.

“At Starved Rock, we probably walked three miles,” she said. “He was the one who led the way. He was always looking for a way to get ahead of the pack…. You’d never guess he was sick.”

Roo’s story has apparently gone viral across the country, and he has received a lot of attention.

“All we want is for people to know about Roo and his story,” Lauch said.

Others appear to have been inspired by the couple to take their dogs on more adventures and to live each day as if it were their last.

“Everyone assumes you’re depressed all of the time,” Lauch said. “However, he has no idea, and dogs can sense how you are feeling.”

Nobody knows how long Roo will live, so the two are taking things day by day.

“He has no idea he’s going to die,” Lauch explained. “So we just roll with it and give him whatever he wants,” says the narrator. It’ll be difficult in the end, but for now, we’re trying not to think about it.”
