One of Eddie’s bucket list items was to “become an honorary K-9 officer.” That’s when the Pasco Police Department stepped up to answer the call of duty. They treated Eddie, affectionately known as Eddie Spaghetti, to a day with the city’s police department. Eddie wore a custom-made uniform and rode in a police car to various spots around town, including a Petsmart, a Starbucks and a doughnut shop, KEPR reported.

The sweet moments were captured in photos and video and posted on the Pasco Police Department’s Facebook page.
