We don’t deserve dogs – that much is clearly true. But we actually greatly underestimate how well they understand us and how well we can communicate with them without even knowing it. A HEARTBROKEN family has shared the intimate moment a beloved dog was allowed into the hospital to say goodbye to her owner who was (ᴅʏɪɴɢ) from ill.
When a 33-year-old Ryan Jessen suddenly (ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ) from (brain ʜᴇᴍᴏʀʀ.ʜᴀɢᴇ) last month, hospital staff showed a very unexpected gesture.
“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. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog,” Ryan’s sister Michelle wrote on her post page.
Ryan Jessen was rushed to hospital last month after what he initially thought was a migraine ᴛᴜʀɴᴇᴅ out to be a ғᴀᴛᴀʟ brain (ʜᴇᴍᴏʀʀ.ʜᴀɢᴇ). The 33-year-old was surrounded by his family on November 30 as doctors said he was set to lose his sudden fight against the condition.
During Jessen’s final moments, his loved ones gathered around his hospital bed to say their goodbyes. Hospital staff allowed his dog Mollie in to say goodbye, with the moment being filmed by loved ones and later shared on social.
Michelle Jessen, Ryan’s sister, posted on the social networking site: “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. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.”
So many people have asked — He thought he had a migraine, but it was a ventricular (ғᴀᴛᴀʟ ʜᴇᴍᴏʀʀ.ʜᴀɢᴇ). They think it was brought on by high blood pressure, and there’s speculation that his frequent consumption of energy drinks may have contributed.
THANK YOU to everybody for the outpouring of support, but I won’t be responding anymore. We are sincerely touched and humbled by others’ stories, their sharing in our sadness, and the kindness of so many people.
“Don’t worry about the dog! We’re keeping her!!! She’s part of the family.”
In fact, a dog’s incredible sense of smell is one of the key explanations for the seemingly telepathic relationship people have with their dogs. They can smell the things responsible for how we feel even if we don’t know they’re there.
That’s likely what is happening in the case of this young man and his dog, who can recognize how ill his owner is and visibly reflects that by sadly nudging his chest.
