Eddie lives in Washington where he’s under the care of Mikey’s Chance Canine Rescue.

After Eddie was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor and given a window of 6 to 12 months to live, Mikey’s Rescue and Eddie’s foster mom came up with a bucket list for him.

The Pasco Police Department stepped in to help make some of the bucket list wishes come true.

Then he took a ride in the cruiser, shotgun of course, and stopped by some local businesses.

The stops included Starbucks, PetSmart, Petco, a donut shop and more. The police department says he was “welcomed everywhere he went and shown nothing but love and affection all day.”
