Most people wind up saying goodbye to their dogs as they pass over the Rainbow Bridge. In this case, the situation was reversed.
Ryan woke up one day and went to work as usual, only to suffer a brain hemorrhage and wind up in the hospital. He slipped into a coma, and brain scans showed that the damage to his brain was far too much for him to recover from.
Meanwhile, his beloved dog Mollie was at home, thinking that Ryan would come back at any time. Ryan’s family didn’t want Mollie to spend the rest of her life wondering why Ryan never came home from work that day.
The family asked the hospital for special permission to bring Mollie to the hospital so that she could say goodbye and hopefully understand why she would never see her dad again.
