CLEVELAND — The Friends of City Dogs Cleveland are gathering Saturday morning for a very unique wedding. Suzy, an adorable pit bull mix, will be getting hitched to Frankie, a former City Dog.

The “wedding” starts at 10 a.m. and will be live streamed on Suzy’s Facebook page, here.

Suzy is currently in foster hospice care—when she was found on the streets, it was discovered that she had a mammary tumor and cancer.

Suzy was later adopted a volunteer worker at Friends of City Dogs. Her foster family wants Suzy to have the best possible time here on earth while she’s still able to. To do that, her family created a bucket list for Suzy with some incredible events and activities.

Suzy has had some amazing adventures crossing items off her bucket list. They include going for a ride on a Harley, taking a boat trip, going golfing, going on a train ride, going shopping and many more awesome things.

That brings her to Saturday where she is set to get married to Frankie. The wedding party is complete with bridesmaids, groomsmen and a ring bearer. Of course, there will be wedding cake and a DJ will spin some awesome tunes.

Instead of wedding gifts, please consider purchasing an item off of Amazon on the City Dogs kennel wish list or making a donation.
