We don't deserve dogs
I’m sorry, but dogs are the warmest, most loving creatures to ever exist. Despite how dopey they can be, they are able to connect with the people around them in astounding ways. Anyone who’s owned a dog can attest to the fact that they know what’s going on with the people around them. Dogs know when you’re sick, they can tell when you’re sad, and they always seem to know who in the house needs them most.
Don’t believe me? Here’s your proof. And, just so you know, it might wreck you.
A Sudden Turn
On November 30, 2016, Ryan Jessen was laying on his death bed with his family by his side. His death was sudden and tragic—Jessen had been suffering from what he thought was a migraine all day. When he eventually sought medical attention, he was told that he had a ventricular brain hemorrhage and it was unlikely that the doctors could do anything for him.
As his condition worsened and his family gathered by his side, but Ryan’s mother felt that someone was missing. According to his sister, Michelle Jessen, they asked the hospital if Ryan’s beloved dog, Mollie, could come say goodbye to Ryan before he passed on. Michelle captured the heartbreaking moment between Ryan and Mollie on film and posted it to Facebook where it immediately blew up.
One Last Time
The video shows an unconscious Ryan laying in a hospital bed as his parents bring Mollie to him. “Say goodbye,” Ryan’s father says and Mollie sniffs his owner. “Bye bye, daddy Ryan,” his mother adds. Mollie spends a bit more time investigating her owner before she realizes what’s happening, at which point she moves to curl up at his feet one last time.
