NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - July 20 will officially be known as Sir Teddy day, thanks to the North Myrtle Beach Humane Society and the North Myrtle Beach City Council.

Teddy Bear, the terminally ill North Myrtle Beach Humane Society dog, charmed the Grand Strand with his bucket list.

Teddy was abandoned at the North Myrtle Beach Humane Society in July 2021 at the age of 15.

Workers found him early one hot morning, scared and confused.

He had a tumor on his back end, which was diagnosed as terminal cancer.

Unsure of how long Teddy had NMBHS devoted its time to ensuring his golden days were filled with adventure and happiness.

From boat rides, meeting penguins, and being knighted, Teddy lived nine more amazing months.
