They wanted his dog to say goodbye so she’d know why her human never came home.
Mollie has always been faithful to her human, Ryan Jessen, 33. She was still by his side, but when he was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage from which he would not recover, his family took her to his bedside to say goodbye.
Jessen died the next day from a ventricular brain hemorrhage at the age of 33, according to Michelle’s Facebook post.
While the video was most likely intended for their immediate friends and family, it has moved people all over the world. The family says they have been “sincerely touched and humbled” by the outpouring of love and support from so many people. Michelle made a point of assuring everyone that Mollie would be well-cared for. “Don’t be concerned about the puppy! We’re going to hold her!!!She is a member of the family.”
