Whenever I’m feeling under the weather, my dog almost always makes me feel better. I think most dog owners would agree that our furry nurses can always provide comfort in the worst of times. Reddit user “Metamike” posted this photo of his father at the hospital being cuddled by his dog. He said that it was the happiest he had seen his dad since being admitted.

According to Metamike, his father had gone in for abdominal surgery, but ended up staying longer for another surgery due to complications. All of the hospital time had taken a toll on his dad’s spirits, so he was thrilled when a cuddle with his pup put a smile on his face. The touching photo went viral and it has been viewed over 1.5 million times in the past day since it went up.
People who have viewed it have left encouraging comments and questions about how his father has been doing. Some of my favorite comments include “We don’t deserve dogs,” and “Dogs are the best people.” We hope Metamike’s dad feels better soon!
