    Default Boy Starts 'Lick It List' for Dying Service Dog

    Boy Starts 'Lick It List' for Dying Service Dog

    Earlier this week, the Merriam-Webster added the term "bucket list" to its vocabulary, describing it as "a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying."

    Already, the word is being redefined.

    One 11-year-old boy from Canada is thanking his service dog in a very special way during the final days of the Jack Russell terrier's life.

    Cole Hein set up a "Lick It List" for his 14-year-old dog Bingo, who was given to his family in 2005 by the Ontario-based National Service Dogs due to an undiagnosed medical condition that causes Cole to stop breathing.

    Although Cole now has control of his condition, Bingo has helped save his life several times over the last few years; when he stops breathing, she's trained to bark to alert others that her owner needs CPR, according to the Winnipeg Free Press.

    Bingo, who was inducted into the Purina Animal Hall of Fame in 2010, according to Modern Dog Magazine, was diagnosed with canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome and was given just weeks to live.

    On Bingo's canine-friendly bucket list: "I want to take her on one last public outing to Ruckers [recreation center]. I want to walk her around the block twice. And I want to get her treats from around the world," Cole tells the Free Press.

    Cole's getting a hand with that last hope. The family set up a Facebook page, and Cole "is teasing Bingo about her new treats coming," his mom, Mandi, added to the Winnipeg Free Press. (The family is not asking for monetary donations, and Bingo's veterinarian bills are covered by insurance.)

    Adds Mandi: "Cole is doing the happy dance."

    Send Bingo a tasty treat at PO Box 413, Shilo, MB, Canada, R0K 2A0

    Awww, so sweet and so sad.

    I remember reading about a family who had to put their dog to sleep and they gave him (her) chocolate ice cream as her last meal. Since chocolate is such a forbidden food and doggie always wanted a bite of ice cream when the family enjoyed it.

    ^^My dog had a full roast dinner, some cheese and some real chocolate as her last meal. These were all the things that she either wasn't allowed at all or supposed to have often but she loved it!
