Dog Waits By The Door To Welcome Home Dad From The Hospital

“She is the true definition of a dog.”

Katie Snyder sent her dog Leia to live with her dad in April but never thought that she would build such a strong bond with her dad.

Leia has a secret thought. She loves having Snyder’s parents all to herself and not being bugged by her two dog siblings.

“Leia is not your typical cuddly dog,” Snyder spoke to The Dodo. “She’s very independent and laid-back.”

“Leia loves all of her humans in her own way,” she added. “Whether it be by laying near you during movie night or sitting outside of the bathroom door waiting for you to finish.”

Snyder found that Leia was enjoying her vacation in the house of Snyder’s parents. But she was really amazed at the way Leia loved and cared for her dad until their relationship was put to the test.

Snyder’s parents had dinner out to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. Unexpectedly, her dad had some secondary complications from cancer. He was immediately sent to hospital and had to stay the night in the hospital. Snyder’s mom was unable to join him due to COVID-19.

When Snyder’s mom returned home alone, she saw Leia standing vigil by the front door with her head bowed, waiting patiently for her dad to come home. Such a good girl!

It was clear her mother wasn’t the only one distressed. This scene warmed the heart of her mother, proving that our pets can sense and are truly our best friends.

To save this precious moment for later, Snyder’s mom took out her phone and snapped a photo of the heartbroken dog. She texted it to her daughter, saying: “When she sent me that picture, I immediately burst into tears. It absolutely killed me,” Snyder said. “I was able to see how much [Leia] truly loved my dad and that she was missing him.”

When Snyder’s dad returned home from hospital the next day, he and Leia were very happy.

After seeing the heart-melting reaction of Leia to her dad’s absence, Snyder planned to let her stay with her parents forever.

“When it comes to loyalty, she is the true definition of a dog,” Snyder said. “He is her human now.”

“My mom has gotten used to having another female kiss him on the cheek,” she added.
