To Grant a Dying Man’s Last Wish to See His Dog, A Hospital Bent Their No-Pets Rule, And Their Reunion Was Beautiful

When James Wathern was admitted into a Kentucky hospital, his health was declining quickly and he was thought to not have much time left. Social workers who were talking with Wathern discovered that his dying wish was to see his dog, Bubba. Although the hospital has a strict no-pets policy, they decided to bend the rules and track down his beloved elderly Chihuahua at his foster home. Their reunion was emotional and heartwarming, and was luckily caught on tape! They report that Wathern’s health is steadily improving, and that now Wathern, as well as Bubba, are eating regularly and seem less depressed. The healing power of animals is nothing to be laughed at. The hospital says they are now revisiting their no-pets policy after witnessing his improvements.

Watch their adorable and heartwarming reunion, in the video below! And, as always, let us know what you think in the comments below!
