Lucas' wish to have an Englsih Bulldog Puppy

Fourteen year old Lucas was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. While in the hospital the past year, Lucas would distract himself from the Doctors, tests and treatments by looking at pictures and information on English Bulldogs. So, when it was finally time for Lucas to decide on a wish, he knew exactly what to ask for: an English Bulldog, which he would name Tucker. 

A limousine picked Lucas, his mother, two brothers and sister up from their home to finally meet his new puppy! When Lucas arrived at Petland he found his family, friends and the entire staff waiting outside for him. There were balloons, signs, banners and a red carpet Lucas ran down to cheers and whistles. Waiting at the end of the red carpet was Lucas' new puppy, Tucker! After spending some time with Tucker, Petland let Lucas shop for some fun toys, treats and a new spike collar for his new friend. 

Lucas and his family also got to spend some of his Wish Day at a local pizzeria, Napollis, where they enjoyed pizza and cupcakes! After a funfilled afternoon, Lucas and his family were ready to take Tucker home to shower him with love and attention. Lucas' mother, Christine, said this was was "the best day of our family's life!"
