From the Winnipeg Free Press:
A boy’s dog helped him live when they were both younger.
Now that the boy is older, and his dog is in the final stages of his life of service, the child wants to pay it back with a bucket list for the animal.
Make that a “Lick It List.”
Cole and his mom Mandi have set up a Facebook page to encourage people to send dog treats for his hearing/medical service/therapy dog.
“I love my dog,” Cole said on Friday.
“I’ve made a list for her final days on Earth. I want to take her on one last public outing to Ruckers. I want to walk her around the block twice. And I want to get her treats from around the world.”
Here’s Bingo’s Facebook page.
