While some hospitals make exceptions, not many allow cats and dogs to visit their owners, despite the tremendous health benefits. Twitter user Hennick Shelby's grandma is in the hospital, and wanted to see her dog. The hospital allegedly wouldn't allow it, so Shelby and her family decided to pretend the dog was a baby...
Unsurprisingly, people love it.
I'm so sorry for your loss.. the important thing is you made an effort and I'm sure she appreciated it❤— Shelbae (@HennickShelby) June 12, 2017
Sure, as long as I get to play with the dog before/after. 🐶🐾— Shelbae (@HennickShelby) June 12, 2017
I don't know who you are but all this people giving you shit for nothing, like what? This was the sweetest thing ever. You are a hero. 👌❤— Iveta Piliarová (@ivetka98) June 13, 2017
Others, however, weren't so happy.
There's a reason why dogs are banned, there are people who are allergic to them etc...— BB19 (@TheWesternVoice) June 12, 2017
They actually do let dogs in, i.e. Therapy dogs, emotional support, service dogs, etc. I was in the hospital 3 wks ago. They let a lady keep— Frannie Marie (@FrancescaFeekes) June 12, 2017
