    Dog With Terminal Cancer Gets Her Own Bridal Shower

    So many conflicting emotions. Lucky the Maltese was diagnosed with terminal spleen cancer and given less than a year to live. Her owner decided to throw a bridal shower with 12 of her puppy friends to lift her spirits and raise awareness of canine cancer.

Like many brides, she's in a rush to walk down the aisle but this was not your typical bridal shower. The bride, Lucky, like 12 of the 32 guests, is a dog. An energetic but aging Maltese, Lucky was diagnosed with spleen cancer in February and given 3 months to a year to live. She's still looking for her groom but moving ahead with plans for a July 12 wedding at the Jumeirah Essex House hotel.
