Reddit user Mellifluous_Username recently shared a story on the forum about sneaking his dog into the hospital to see his dying wife. And while his way of sneaking the dog into the hospital, which usually doesn’t allow pets, allowed her to see her beloved pet one last time, this story does end up having a sad ending.

Here is the happy story of how he snuck his dog into the hospital to see his dying wife.

According to the Reddit user, his wife was in the hospital after an invasive surgery. She was suffering complications following that surgery and her outlook was not good. While she was able to still communicate, she had stopped eating and drinking, and was relying on an IV and pain pills.

As she lay there dying she had one last request of her husband.

Her Dying Request

The couple owned an Australian Shepherd dog named Bella. And even though the dog weighed 50 pounds, his wife, in a moment of cogence requested to see her one last time. Her husband, not wishing to deny her dying wish, set about seeking a way to do make it happen. Luckily, she had a private room.

The eventual plan he came up with was to sneak her into the hospital in a suitcase. And even though she was quite the handful, she fit perfectly into a normal suitcase. So, Mellifluous_Username put her in the suitcase and zipped it close. Upon arriving at the hospital, he explained to Bella that he would open the suitcase in a few minutes.

Lucky for him, Bella kept quite as they snuck past the nurse’s station. When asked about the suitcase, Mellifluous_Username told them that he was bringing items to make his wife more comfortable. The hospital staff ushered him inside, unaware of what was actually in the suitcase.

Upon opening the suitcase, the dog immediately took her place across her dying owner’s lap, looking directly into her eyes. For her part, Bella refrained from barking, merely quietly moaning when his wife woke up in pain, as she started licking his wife.

Bella lay quietly in this position for about 20 minutes. Once his wife woke up, she hugged Bella for almost an hour, a smile on her face the whole time. At one point a nurse came into the room, but was so touched by the display that she promised not to tell anyone.

A Sad Ending to the Story

After his wife fell back to sleep, Mellifluous_Username quietly packed Bella back into the suitcase and left. Sadly, his wife passed away a few days later. According to Mellifluous_Username, he still doesn’t even know the truth, and every time he grabs his suitcase, Bella perks up like they are going to see his wife again.
