73-year-old Giovanni Del Sere and his dog Nancy are the best of friends. They do a lot of fun things together and after years of friendship, they become inseparable.
But things suddenly changed after Giovanni suffered a heart attack and was confined for weeks in a local hospital.
Giovanni slip into a coma and showed no improvement at all despite the regular visits of his family and close friends.
Nancy becomes so restless at home as she waits for her human friend to come home. Giovanni’s daughter, Deborah, noticed the dog’s sudden change of mood and behavior.
And as soon as she learned that the hospital where his father is currently confined allows pets, she immediately brought Nancy to Giovanni’s bedside.
Upon seeing Giovanni, Nancy began barking and started licking his old pale face. It’s like she’s telling him that that she misses his presence so much.
But what’s more amazing with their reunion is the reaction on Gioavanni’s face.

Deborah definitely thinks that Nancy’s presence created a positive impact on her father’s situation.
And because of this, she’s calling all hospitals to allow pets to visit their owners once in a while as they could be the instrument for their fast healing and recovery, just like what happened to her father.
