Mark Sutherland is facing the dog owner’s heartbreak: saying goodbye to his best friend. Abby, a 16-year-old Whippet, doesn’t have a lot of time left, so Sutherland decided they would take the trip of a lifetime before her health fails.
He’s creating a feature film documentary about their journey called “Abby’s List: A Dogumentary” to capture a trip to the California Redwoods, Abby’s first time in snow and more.
“We were living on borrowed time, so I decided to pack up my stuff, sell a bunch of it, and we would hit the road together doing items on her bucket list,” Sutherland said. “And we decided to shoot a film while we were doing it.”
