The Animal Welfare League of Arlington posted about 10-year-old Smoke on Thursday tugging at the heartstrings of people who are trying to make this little guy's bucket list happen.

Some items, like eating a cheeseburger have already happened. The Arlington County Police Department announced on their Facebook that they will be helping with two additional items. 

"Here is Smoke, a 10 year old hound currently available for adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. Smoke was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, and shelter staff is unsure how much time he has left. You may have seen this story featured in local media, and today along with The Arlington County Police Department, we are going to help cross two things off his bucket list, a ride in a fire truck and police cruiser! Stay tuned for the video."

Smoke went to a foster family over the weekend for a visit.
