Humans and dogs share a history of bondage since the advent of this world, and the way they both connect with each other leaves no doubt to think otherwise. Dog is known to be one of the most loyal animals one can have, and indeed a man’s best friend. Though this bond can be seen in play from time to time, but no one has ever really been able to tell the secret behind this mysterious chemistry.
Recently, another story of this human-dog relationship made its way to social media that reminded people of this glorious bond.
In this anecdote, a dog-owner tells about the touching encounter between his wife and his dog during the last days of her life. Although he shares the story in gratitude for his pet dog, but it is a heartbreaking encounter nonetheless.
The account was shared on Reddit by an unknown person with the username of Melliflous_Username, and since then everyone has reacted to his post by sharing their special experiences with dogs. Anyway, Melliflous_Username describes the circumstances which impelled him to hide his dog inside a suitcase to get her inside a hospital. That said; let’s explore the situation in detail without any further delay.
The user was undergoing tough times at the moment of the incident. His wife was terribly ill as she had been diagnosed with a fatal disease, and the doctors said the only chance of her survival was left in a surgery. Therefore, he went for the only option he had been presented with, but it failed to restore his wife’s health as she didn’t show any signs of getting better afterwards.
The doctors weren’t very optimistic about her survival, and almost gave up on her when her disease took over most of her body. She struggled to speak and was not able to drink or eat anything at all. This was a very trying time for her husband, and he wanted to make it easy on her, so when she was able to gather enough energy to speak to him again, he was willing to do anything for her at that point. However, she asked him to bring her their dog to her private room in the hospital, so that she could spend some time with her. The request did sound strange to him, but it didn’t matter because there was no way he could refuse.
At first, he was unsure whether he would be able to fulfill his wife’s dying request because he knew that the authorities, as per their policy, wouldn’t allow this to happen, but he decided to go for it anyway.
Fortunately, hiding Bella wasn’t much of a problem as she is not a dog of big size. Bella is a Shepard who weighs 50 pounds, so he thought of hiding her inside of a suitcase. Luck seemed to be on his side in this regard because she got in the suitcase rather comfortably.
He left the suitcase unzipped and placed the package in his car before leaving the hospital the next time. The writer said:
“When we arrived, I “explained” to her that I would open the zipper in a few minutes and that she could see her Mommy. Unbelievably, she never whimpered, barked, or whined.”
On reaching the hospital, the man was able to make his way to his wife’s room without encountering any problem. The only time he got questioned about the package in his hand was from a group of nurses, to which he rightly answered that it contained something that will make his wife more comfortable. That was it, and they were through the security checks to find themselves in his wife’s room.
When there, he found his wife to be asleep, so he unzipped the suitcase so Bella could settle in, get familiar with the place. Surprisingly, the first thing Bella did was to approach the man’s wife, and find herself her a perfect spot from where she could watch her owner while she slept. Moreover, Bella did it very carefully, that is she didn’t step over any wire and was very gentle in her walk.
Bella laid still and made no noise till the writer’s wife woke up, and on seeing her awake she started to lick her face excitedly but as gently as possible at the same time.
The Writer adds, “My wife hugged her for almost an hour, smiling the whole time. We were busted by one nurse who was so touched that she promised not to tell.”
The visiting hours were over, so Bella was returned to the suitcase by the writer otherwise she seemed to be in no mood to go back home.
Although, his wife passed away a few days later but Bella’s visit to the hospital inside of a suitcase left a deep impression on her. As he shares:
“Whenever I grab the suitcase, (any suitcase) Bella thinks we are going to see her again.”
