PASCO, WA — A terminally ill dog in Pasco, Washington, got to become a police kK-9 for a day.

Eddie has an inoperable tumor and has been given less than a year to live.

So police officers came up with a bucket list to help him make the most of his time.

They made him an honorary K-9 officer and took him on a tour around town.

His assignment: to visit area stores and pick up items donated to a local canine rescue

He also lounged in a pool full of toys and was interviewed by a local TV crew.

Eddie looked the part in a Pasco police jacket, inspiring smiles at every stop.

Officers say he was shown the love and support he deserves everywhere they went.
