ARKANSAS— A group of state troopers went beyond the call of duty to make sure a little boy in Arkansas had the best birthday.

Little Toxey had invited his whole class—21 kids—to celebrate his 10th birthday, but sday no one showed up.

His mom Angela posted about her son's birthday sadness and disappointment on Facebook.

Two days later Toxey was greeted by a group of Arkansas state troopers, including a k-9 officer named Rhino.

They came bearing all kinds of gifts for Toxey, along with a cookie cake.

They spent the day playing basketball and letting the little boy turn on the sirens in one of the squad cars.

Angela posted on Facebook ​thanking the officers for their kindness and for a birthday celebration her son will never forget.​
