(DOGS/PETS/ANIMAL VIDEOS) Parting is such sweet sorrow. After Mollie the boxer’s beloved dad, Ryan Jessen, fell terminally ill, the Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville, California allowed family members to bring the dog to say her final goodbye.

Ryan’s sister Michelle shared the video on Facebook, saying: “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…If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.”

This heartbreaking video reminds us just how strong a bond between man and dog can be. — Global Animal
