Lakeland Chihuahua crossing items off bucket list

Coffee Bean the Chihuahua, who endured years of abuse, now works on his bucket list.

A 17-year-old Chihuahua that was neglected and abused before being adopted by a loving family is now embarking on a big adventure.

Coffee Bean's owners took him in earlier this year and set out to cross items off a bucket list they created for him.

"I wanted him to know what it felt like to have unconditional love," owner Tiffany Hutto said.

The list includes fun things Coffee Bean never got to do, like "take a boat ride" and "eat ice cream."

 

Right now, the bucket list has 26 items, and Coffee Bean has already crossed off a few of them. He's met Miss Florida and gotten a massage, manicure and pedicure.

Most recently, Coffee Bean's owners took him to the Lakeland Police Department, where he met the chief and became an honorary police K-9. He also met Lakeland's city manager, who presented him with a "bone to the city."

"I'm a breast cancer survivor, and I think I'm very strong willed," Hutto said. "But he has shown me, you can fight through anything, even old age."

Coffee Bean has a lot more items to check off, including going to a ball game and riding in a convertible.
