After being diagnosed with an unidentified medical condition which prompted Cole, an 11 year old boy to suddenly stop breathing, the National Service Dogs in Winnipeg sent Cole a special gift. Bingo, the gifted pup was trained to notice when Cole’s breathing would cease and notify those around him by barking. She saved Cole’s life multiple times, and naturally the two became best friends. 

Cole is now old enough to respond to the condition on his own. Unfortunately, Bingo, who is hovering over 14 years of age hasn’t been as lucky. Bingo was diagnosed with Canine Cognitive Dysfuntion Syndrome, a condition which plagues her with seizures and poor eye sight. After this diagnosis, Cole was notified she only had a few more weeks to live. When Cole heard the news he decided to make a gourmet bucket list for his life-saving best friend as a thank you gift. 

Cole told the Winnipeg free press, “I’ve made a list for her final days on Earth. I want to take her on one last public outing to Ruckers. I want to walk her around the block twice. And I want to get her treats from around the world.” [Via Global Animal]
