Family Makes Dying Dog’s Wish Come True
April 15, 2017
A Texas family made their beloved dog Charlie’s last day one to remember.
Charlie’s owner, Kevin, said he always believed she would be a great police dog. He even tried to train her from YouTube videos when she was young.
But this week, a veterinarian told the family that Charlie had a tumor in her brain. The family had to make the tough decision to put their dog down.
So on Charlie’s final day, the Navid family took her out to get a burger and ice cream, they even let her wash it down with a rib-eye steak from a nearby restaurant. And when they saw a police officer at the park, they couldn’t pass up an opportunity to take a picture.
“I don’t think it was a coincidence he was there,” Kevin told WFAA.
The officer posed for a photo with Charlie and the Denton Police Department shared it on Facebook, dubbing Charlie its newest K-9 officer, fulfilling a lifelong dream for the Navid family.
“When I saw those photos I just thought there is my Charlie. She’s a K-9 officer all these years later,” Kevin said.
