Dog with terminal cancer made honorary police K-9 for a day

Viral News | Published:

Eddie is thought to have between six months and a year to live.

An abandoned dog dying from cancer crossed an item off his bucket list as he was sworn in as a police K-9 for a day.

Eddie was picked up by animal services in Benton City, Washington, in November last year, after having been spotted wandering the streets.

Eddie was taken in by a foster mum, Kristi Kesler, who told CNN she intended to give him “six months to a year of all the love and happiness that we can give him”.

Along with a local animal shelter, Mikey’s Chance Canine Rescue, she came up with a bucket list for her new dog, and one of those items was crossed off on Monday when he was sworn in as an honorary officer for the day with nearby Pasco Police Department.

First he was sworn in, promising to “apprehend bad guys, search out narcotics and put people in jail”, before being taken out and about by Detective Julie Lee.

He was taken to a local garage for a “property pick-up”, which turned out to be a bucket of treats – as well as a contribution to his vet bills.

He also met dispatchers, and was given more toys and treats by local shops and members of the public, before making an appearance on local TV.

Ms Kesler said the day turned out to more than she hoped for.

She told KEPR: “I thought maybe he might get his picture taken with an officer in a car, I thought maybe if he were lucky, he might go for a car ride, but I never dreamed it would be this big for him.”
