In a magnanimous move from a Burger King Outlet in Toledo, Ohio, a dying canine gets his last wish granted.
Cody, a 10-year-old Boxer-Labrador mix, was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer.
In a heartwarming turn of events, the Burger King outlet agreed to supply the dog with his favourite snack—cheeseburgers—for free through his final days.
Karcher and family were heartbroken when they found out about Cody's condition, and decided to make Cody's final days as memorable as possible. They went on to purchase a cheeseburger for the canine to consume together with his medications everyday.
When Karcher visited the Burger King outlet on Alexis Road on a Sunday, the owner had casually explained his predicament to an employee. After hearing the story, the outlet decided to grant Cody with free cheeseburgers as a pleasant surprise.
Karcher and his family were beyond appreciative for the offer, adding that the employees at the Burger King Alexis Road restaurant were simply “the best around.”
Karcher took to Twitter to thank the fast food chain, saying, “Thanks to @BurgerKing for showing so much love and kindness towards my family and our dog, Cody. It's appreciated more than words can describe.”
Burger King responded on Twitter, “The world needs more kindness and empathy. Thank you for giving us the chance to do this for Cody.”
Karcher's mother Lynn Morris said that all the family wanted to do was to ensure that Cody's final days were as comfortable as possible. The family calls him an “old gentleman” as Cody was always looking out for them. Treating him with cheeseburgers allowed the family to show their appreciation to him for being such “a good boy.”
The matriarch also thanked Burger King for its kindness and encouraged viewers to take care of their pets. Cody was only eight-weeks-old when he entered their lives and turned out to be the “best of companions” for them.
