MANZANITA, OR (KPTV) -

A dog named Dood made his first trip to the coast for his owner's wedding, but because of a terminal diagnosis, it will also be his last.

Dood's owner, Cassidy Williams, said the 5-year-old Golden Retriever was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer on his skull in July.

Williams had plans to get married on Aug. 7 and Dood was supposed to stay with family in Utah while she and her fiance exchanged vows on the Oregon Coast.

But because of Dood's diagnosis, Williams said she decided to change her plans so the dog could be with them at the wedding.

Williams' dad canceled his flight and drove Dood from Utah to Manzanita so he could serve as ring bearer in the ceremony.

Williams said the wedding was perfect and Dood got to see the ocean before the cancer takes him.
