A Burger King in Ohio is offering a terminally ill dog the opportunity to have his favorite food ‘his way,’so that he can be happy in his last days on earth.

It’s never easy when we know our pets are terminally ill. All we want to do is make their last days on earth they happiest they can be.

A Burger King in Ohio is helping a family do just that for their ten-year-old boxer-lab mix Cody, as they’ve offered to give Cody free cheeseburgers fort he rest of his days. Cody loves Burger King’s cheeseburgers, and when he was diagnosed with cancer two months ago, his family began buying them for him regularly.

Alex Karcher is Cody’s dad, and was told that Cody had about one to three months to live from cancer. Karcher said that his family was devastated, of course, and went on a mission to make Cody’s last days the best they could be. Every day, since his diagnosis, they’ve bought him a plain cheeseburger to go with his medications.

When Karcher went in last week to the East Alexis Toledo, Ohio Burger King they’d been frequenting, a store employee asked about the burger. When Karcher told her it was for his dying dog Cody, the employee asked him to wait a minute so she could talk to her manager.

Moments later, she told Karcher that they’d be honored to let Cody eat for free at their Burger King, and Karcher said in a social media post that he was grateful beyond words for the kind gesture.
