How Burger King is making this dog’s last days special
Share This Article:
A family has thanked Burger King after a local branch granted their terminally ill dog free burgers for the rest of his life. Cody the 10-year-old boxer-labrador cross is suffering from a form of bone cancer, and has been given between one and three months to live by his vet. “The vet told us to take him home until things worsened, and we decided we wanted to make the last stretch of his life as good as possible,” said Cody’s owner Alec Karcher, 22, from Toledo, Ohio. “For the last two months, we’ve been getting Cody daily cheeseburgers from either our own kitchen or some fast food restaurant [plain because the condiments aren’t very good for them]. “It’s been a way for us to show our love and appreciation for him being such a good dog over the years, and it helps him take his medicine every night.” On Sunday’s visit to Burger King to pick up Cody’s daily burger, family member Bill Campbell had an encounter with an employee he, or Cody, won’t forget. “The woman working at the time kindly joked about him ordering a plain cheeseburger, and he told her Cody’s story,” said Alec. “She immediately went to talk to her manager, and after a few minutes she came back and told him that the burgers for Cody would be free at their location until he passed.”
