Nora Hall, a baby of only 5 months suffered a catastrophic stroke, causing severe brain damage.
In fact, she was born with pulmonary hypertension. Unfortunately, he did not have many days to live. He would be in a coma for only three weeks.
In her house, Nora had two Basset Hounds named Gracie and Gumpy.
“Gracie, especially, took on the role as the second mother,” Mary Hall told. “Whenever Nora would cry, Gracie would run to see what was wrong. She was always, always by Nora and kissing her and making sure she was OK.”
While the family was about to say goodbye to Nora, the doctors asked them if they had a last wish. The parents said they wanted the dog to stay with the girl in her last moments.
“I asked, ‘If you could let us have our dogs at the hospital, we’d really appreciate that,'” Hall said. “I didn’t want to go home and have them sniffing around for her and not knowing where she went. They lowered the bed so the dogs could lay with her and Gracie ran up and licked her.”
“It was really nice,” Mary said. “It brought us a lot of comforts.”
The puppies still comfort their parents for the loss of little Nora.
