Act of Kindness Hospital Allows Dog to Visit Her Dying Owner


An act of kindness for Ryan Jessen last days. A California hospital allowed his dog to visit him.

Ryan Jessen thought he had a migraine, but the pain turned out to be caused by a ventricular brain hemorrhage.

In his final days at a California hospital his best friend, Mollie, got to say goodbye and Ryan’s sister captured the bittersweet reunion on video and shared the clip on Facebook.

“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,” wrote Michelle Jessen. “If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.”Dog Visits Dying Owner in Hospital Michelle Jessen FB

Though he passed away on November 30, his organs were donated, and the following day a 17-year-old from California, whose birthday is on Christmas day, received his heart.
