If your loved one was diagnosed with cancer, you would want help them get the most out of life, right?  But what if it's your four-legged friend?  Kelly Sommariva reports.

 A park lined with tall grasses winds around a small creek in Colorado. It's a warm summer afternoon. This, is Marsha's favorite place.

Though she may not realize why, each day she's here, is a gift.

"We've taken her camping, fishing, she loves to play in tall grass," Judy Jaros, Marsha's best friend, said. "We just decided we're gonna hike and camp, we go fly fishing... The only trick with that, is every time my husband casts the fly, she thinks my husband is throwing a ball so she goes trying to run in the river!" Jaros laughed.

Marsha is a 5-year-old American Bulldog Mix.

"I just fell in love with her. My husband too," Jaros said, "We're just giving her one fun day after another."
