Husband sneaks dog into hospital in a suitecase so his dying wife can say goodbye
If it was your last day on earth, what would you want? Would you want to go do something you’ve always wanted to do but were too scared to? Or maybe you would go and buy something you wouldn’t normally, just for the heck of it. Well, it was one of this woman’s last days on earth, when as he asked her husband to do something a little “crazy” for her.
Now, this is no ordinary “I want this as my last meal,” or “I really want this before I go.” This was meaningful. The hard part? It wasn’t allowed in the hospital.
A man went to extreme lengths after his dying wife asked to see her beloved dog one last time. He had shared his story on popular site Reddit about how he was able to do it…
“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,” said the husband, who has not been named.
After things began to look down, his wife then asked him to do something for her. But he was nervous it wasn’t going to work. But he knew he had to try. He was going to bring in their dog to visit her.
“Our dog 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,” recalled the husband.
And that’s exactly what he did. He picked up the suitcase with the little dog inside, and walked right into the hospital. But the dog never made a sound. When he walked by the nurses station near his wife’s room, he told them that he was just bringing in some items to make her feel more comfortable. And they didn’t even think about questioning it.
He then walked into her room, and shut the door. This was it. He was so thankful that the pup stayed completely quiet. He had been so terrified they were going to be caught.
“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 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. When my wife finally went back to sleep, I loaded the dog back in the suitcase, and she somewhat sheepishly obliged,” the husband commented.
And although his wife passed away a few days later, she was able to see her beloved dog one last time because of her husband’s kind actions. And if that isn’t the sweetest thing ever, I don’t know what is!
If you thought that this husband bringing the dog in to visit his wife undercover was one of the sweetest things ever, and are so thankful she got her dying wish, SHARE this post!
