21-year-old Shelby Hennick’s grandmother had almost been justify paralysed due to a reaction to her medications. Shelby told Metro.co.uk: ‘She was unable to walk for two days and would fall over. Unfortunately my grandpa is hard of hearing so he wouldn’t know she had fallen until hours went by and she was on the floor.’ Shelby’s grandma absolutely adores Patsy (her adorable dog), who she’s looked after for for thirteen years.
Shelby explained: ‘She got her dog, Patsy, when she was only a couple weeks old. She had to be bottle fed and fit in the palm of her hand. ‘She’s had her for about 13 years now so it’s a pretty strong bond between the two!’
After her grandmother’s hospital stay reached three days, Shelby knew that she must be missing Patsy like crazy – and so she decided to pull off the most amazing surprise to keep her going – by ‘dog-napping’ Patsy to take her into the hospital to see her doting owner.
Of course, animals aren’t meant to be in the hospital, and so Shelby smuggled her in, wrapped up in a blanket so that nobody could see.
‘Nothing was planned, I just by chance had a blanket in my car, swaddled her up and just walked in! Luckily we’ve been in the hospital enough lately that they remembered who we were so we just walked by and waved to them!’
My grandma is in the hospital right now and wanted to see her dog. So I made it look like I was carrying a baby and we made it 😂❤ pic.twitter.com/oKxNBlJEEL
