A terminally ill British man has been granted his dying wish to see his dog one last time.
Pete Robson's border collie Shep was brought to his hospital bed after staff asked if there was any last comforts he wanted from home, the BBC reported.
When Mr Robson's family said his only desire was to see his dog one last time, they knew this would be unlikely with animals only being allowed into hospitals under exceptional circumstances.
However staff at Ninewells Hospital at Dundee in Scotland considered Mr Robson's case to be exceptional enough to allow his beloved pet to say goodbye.
His granddaughter Ashley Stevens expressed her gratitude to the hospital staff on her Facebook page.
"Still in shock that the wish was granted and they went above and beyond today and made a dying man very happy," Ms Stevens said.
The BBC reported the 70-year-old was suffering from fibrosis of the lungs.
