And you thought ‘Old Yeller’ had a heart-rending ‘goodbye’ scene between dog and master?
Last month Ryan Jessen, from California, thought he had a migraine but was hospitalized with a ventricular brain hemorrhage and did not recover.
His loved ones gathered in his hospital room to say their final goodbyes to him on November 30.
Hospital staff agreed to let his beloved pet boxer dog Mollie bid him farewell.
‘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,’ his sister, Michelle Jessen, wrote in a Facebook post on December 1.
‘If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.’

Even Mollie seems to understand the seriousness of the situation.
