Eddie the dog was sadly diagnosed with an inoperable tumor and given 6 to 12 months to live.
He is currently being cared for by Mikey’s Chance Canine Rescue and has been placed in a foster home with a loving family, where he will live out the rest of his days.
In the mean time, Eddie’s foster family created a bucket list of Eddie so that he could enjoy the time he has left.
On the top of his list was being an honorary police K9 Officer for a day, and thanks to the Pasco Police Department, Eddie was able to cross that off his bucket list!
Detective Julie Lee dressed Eddie up in a uniform and he set out with Pasco officers for a day of patrol around Pasco, Washington.
“We have finished our amazing day with K9 Eddie and we are overwhelmed with the amount of support the community has shown him,” Pasco Police wrote on Facebook. “Eddie was welcomed everywhere he went and shown nothing but love and affection all day.”
The department also posted photos of Eddie during his day out on patrol.
He was all smiles as he road shotgun in the patrol car with the officers. It’s obvious that Eddie enjoyed his time as a police K9!
