Heartbreaking Moment Devoted Dog Visits Hospital to Say Final Goodbye to Dying Owner

A family recognized the strong bond of love between a tragically dying young man and his dog. Kind folks running the hospital where Ryan Jesson was dying gave him a few last moments of happiness by allowing Mollie the boxer dog to visit.

Excerpt from Daily Mail

This is the heartbreaking moment a devoted dog said a final goodbye to her dying owner.

Last month Ryan Jessen, from California, thought he had a migraine but was hospitalized with a ventricular brain hemorrhage and did not recover.

His loved ones gathered in his hospital room to say their final goodbyes to him on November 30.

Hospital staff agreed to let his beloved pet boxer dog Mollie bid him farewell.

The emotional moment was captured on video and has since been shared on Facebook where it has so far touched the hearts of hundreds thousands of people.

‘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,’ his sister, Michelle Jessen, wrote in a Facebook post on December 1.

‘If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.’
Tail between her legs and ears pinned down an upset looking Mollie is seen desperately sniffing her dying owner when she is lifted onto his hospital bed.

Mollie is now living with Ryan’s family, being treated as a member of the family.

Best wishes to Mollie and all of her new humans for caring so much.
