CALIFORNIA — It will bring you to tears. A heartbreaking video shows a dog at her owner’s side in the hospital.

Ryan Thomas Jessen’s sister, Michelle, shared the moving video on her Facebook page.

She wrote, “The hospital did the sweetest thing for us and allowed us to bring my brother’s dog in to “say goodbye” so she’d know why her human never came home. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog.”

The video shows the pup, named Mollie, sniffing her owner. She eventually lies down between his legs on the hospital bed.

Michelle says her brother thought he had a migraine,  but it was a ventricular brain hemorrhage. Ryan’s mom shared on Facebook that her son died on Nov. 30.

Michelle says Ryan’s beloved dog will remain with the family.
