“No Pets In Hospital” Rule Forces Man To Sneak Dog In To Bid Owner Farewell

When a man’s wife was in the hospital, the doctor gave him a grim diagnosis, leaving her very little time to live. He decided that he would sneak their dog into the hospital to see his wife.

“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,” the man wrote in his post.

Their dog is a 50-pound Springer Spaniel, so the man had to find a large enough suitcase to sneak her past the hospital staff. He was afraid the dog would bark and jeopardize their mission.

Surprisingly enough, theSpringer Spaniel remained quiet the entire time he carried her to the hospital.  He lied to the staff and told them he was bringing things to cheer his wife up; the man carried his dog all the way to the room.

“When we entered the room, my wife was asleep. I unzipped the suitcase, and the dog 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,” the man explained.

The dog got as close to her mother as possible and patiently waited for her to wake up. It was a successful mission when the man was finally able to reunite his wife with their beautiful Australian shepherd.

“The dog 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,” the man stated in his Reddit post.

Only a couple days after, the man’s wife passed away. But not without having fulfilled one of her final wishes. The man and his dog were left with a little reminder of the moment they all shared. Now, whenever the man uses the suitcase, the dog thinks they are going back to see her.
