When you’re feeling down, hugging your furry companion can bring happiness.
Whether you have cats, dogs, or other types of animals, your pets can become an important part of your family.
A husband just revealed how he sneaked their dog into the hospital to see his wife. Now, every time Bella, their dog, sees a suitcase, she thinks they were going to see her mommy. Here’s the story he shared on Reddit:
‘My wife was in the hospital after a very invasive surgery, which after a few days, looked like it did not produce ideal results. The prognosis was not good. She was able to speak, but was not eating or drinking, and relied completely on her IV and hard pain pills. In one rare instance of cogent speech, she convinced me to sneak our dog into her private room, so she could see her “one more time.”
‘Our dog, Bella, is about a 50 pound Australian Shepherd, and as it turns out, she fits nicely in a normal suitcase. I packed her in, with the lid unzipped, and placed her in the car until we arrived at the hospital. 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. When I walked past the station nurses, I told them I was simply bringing items to make my wife more comfortable. No problem, they said.
‘When we entered the room, my wife was asleep. I unzipped the suitcase, and Bella immediately jumped on the bed, and gingerly laid across her chest, somehow avoiding the wires and IV.
‘She positioned herself to where she could look directly into my wife’s eyes, and laid completely still, until about twenty minutes later, when my wife woke up, and started moaning in pain.
‘Bella immediately started licking her, and quietly moaned, as if knowing that barking would definitely blow our cover. 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. When my wife finally went back to sleep, I loaded Bella back in the suitcase, and she somewhat sheepishly obliged.
‘My wife sadly passed a few days later, and now, whenever I grab the suitcase, (any suitcase) Bella thinks we are going to see her again.’
People were touched by his story. One commented: ‘Wow, this post actually made me tear up a bit! So sorry to hear about your wife but you deserve a huge kudos for bringing the dog to see her one last time. I’m sure you made her final days of life that much better because of it.’
Another said: ‘Aaaaaand now I’m crying.
Sorry about your wife, man. I love you for sneaking the dog in to see her. And so does she.’
