Our dogs are our best friends, family members, and even our kids. Can you imagine if you knew that you would never get the chance to see your dog again? I knew I was going to want to say goodbye properly, no matter how emotional it might be.
Pete Robson is going through a fatal battle with pulmonary fibrosis, he wants nothing more than to say one last goodbye to his pet dog before passing away.
Ninewells Hospital in Scotland has a strict no-animal policy that they follow strictly but they knew they had to make an exception for Robson as he succumbed to his unfortunate condition.
Robson’s dog, Shep, has been his loyal companion for many years and the two are almost inseparable. The two became incredibly close after the death of Robson’s wife nearly eight years ago.
Ashley Stevens, Robson’s niece was at the hospital when the family brought Shep in to say goodbye to her loving grandfather. Stevens was touched by the kindness and generosity of the hospital for allowing this moment to happen. She had written on her Facebook that, “Still in shock that wishes have come true and they made it through today and made a dying man so happy.”
Stevens noted, “We’re very grateful for that last memory,”
Kudos to you, Ninewells Hospital. You made a dying person’s last wish come true and provide his family with a comforting memory for years to come.
