Dexter, now 13 years of age, was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell cancer, and his guardian, Tyler Nasise, put together a bucket list for the ailing dog; on that list, to be a cover model for the magazine.
On Friday, Nasise announced the amazing news to Dexter's Facebook fans:
The contest has ended but Dexter came in first with 10,296 votes And we both thank ALL of YOU that helped to make one of his wishes come true...Winners will formally be announced Monday.
Though Dexter has been diagnosed with cancer, he is reported to be free from symptoms so far, and he is acting like his normal "spunky self."
