Hospital doesn’t allow pets – Man sneaks dog into hospital in suitcase to say bye to dying wife

In a recent post on, a man detailed his story of sneaking his dog into a hospital by hiding it in a suitcase. The man’s wife was in the hospital and the doctor had given a grim diagnosis, leaving her very little time to live. For this reason, the man decided he needed to sneak their dog into the hospital so his wife could play with her one last time.

“The prognosis was not good. She was able to speak, but was not eating or drinking, and relied completely on her IV and hard pain pills. In one rare instance of cogent speech, she convinced me to sneak our dog into her private room, so she could see her,” the man wrote in his post.

The couple’s dog was a 50-pound Australian shepherd, so the man had to hide the dog inside a large suitcase in order to sneak her past the hospital staff. The man tried to tell the dog she would only have to be in there for a short amount of time, and that she would be able to see her mom again, but he was sure she would bark or make a sound at some point and jeopardize their mission.

To his surprise, the Australian shepherd remained quite the entire time he carried her over to his wife as he made his way to the hospital. Lying to the staff and telling them he was simply bringing some things to cheer his wife up, the man carefully carried his dog all the way to the room.

“When we entered the room, my wife was asleep. I unzipped the suitcase, and the dog immediately jumped on the bed, and gingerly laid across her chest, somehow avoiding the wires and IV. She positioned herself to where she could look directly into my wife’s eyes, and laid completely still, until about twenty minutes later, when my wife woke up, and started moaning in pain,” the man explained.

The dog, seemingly understanding of the situation the woman was in, carefully got as close to her mother as possible and waited for her to wake up. The mission was a success, and the man was finally able to reunite his wife with their beautiful Australian shepherd.

“The dog immediately started licking her, and quietly moaned, as if knowing that barking would definitely blow our cover. My wife hugged her for almost an hour, smiling the whole time. We were busted by one nurse who was so touched that she promised not to tell,” the man stated in his Reddit post.

Just a couple days after this whole encounter, the man’s wife passed away. Having fulfilled one of her final wishes before she passed away, the man and dog were always left with a little reminder of the moment they all shared just a little while before when they looked at the suitcase. Whenever the man goes to use the suitcase now, the dog still thinks they are going back to see her.
