For the loved ones of someone who is about to die, it is of utmost importance to be able to fulfill the last wish of the dying person. Most people request for a meal with their loved ones, hang out in the beach, or simply just be around their family members. The list never ends. A dying person basically just wants to have the best of everything for the last days of his life.
This story about a dying grandpa named Peter Robson is truly remarkable. All he wants is to be able to see his beloved pet dog and say their last goodbyes. Since he is already confined in a medical facility, his request is not that easy to fulfill.
Hospitals are known to be sterile and bringing of pets, of any kind, is not permitted. But then, in rare scenarios, hospitals can also be a bit lenient. Peter Robson’s request is a wish granted.
He was surrounded by his family when his beloved border collie named Shep entered his room. Shep immediately jumped into Peter’s bed, and despite his difficulty in breathing, Peter has managed to remove his oxygen mask so he can talk and kiss Shep. Everyone was crying upon seeing such a heart-melting scene.
Peter’s grandchild Ashley captured everything on camera, and she posted photos and videos on Facebook. She was very thankful to the hospital staff for being so understanding and letting them grant the wish of their dying loved one. Ashley’s post caught the attention of millions of social media users, and most of them have expressed their mixed emotions regarding what happened.
In return, the hospital staff said they were very glad to be able to grant a dying man’s last wish. They said that for the spirit of humanity and compassion, they would not hesitate to bend the rules as long as it is fair and reasonable.
