Heartbreaking Moment Dog Says Goodbye To Owner In Hospital Bed

by : UNILAD on : 09 Dec 2016 16:59

The hospital did the sweetest thing for us and allowed us to bring my brother’s dog in to “say goodbye” so she’d know why her human never came home. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog. (So many people have asked – He thought he had a migraine, but it was a ventricular brain hemorrhage. They think it was brought on by high blood pressure, and there’s speculation that his frequent consumption of energy drinks may have contributed. THANK YOU to everybody for the outpouring of support, but I won’t be responding anymore. We are sincerely touched and humbled by others’ stories, their sharing in our sadness and the kindness of so many people. Don’t worry about the dog! We’re keeping her!!! She’s part of the family.)

Too often we have to say goodbye to our pets, but sometimes they have to face saying goodbye to us.

Last month, Ryan Jessen thought he had a migraine, but it turned out to be a ventricular brain hemorrhage, which he did not recover from.

The 33-year-old was surrounded by his family on November 30 as doctors said he was set to lose his sudden fight against the condition.

As a farewell, hospital staff allowed his dog Mollie in to say goodbye.

The emotional moment was caught on video by Ryan’s family, who later uploaded the footage to Facebook – it has since been viewed more than nine million times.

Our thoughts go out to Ryan’s friends, family, and his dog, Mollie.
