Dog disguised as a baby, for a noble cause

Do you agree with her actions?

A 21-year-old Californian vet tech went to some creative lengths to cheer up her sick grandmother, but the response has been mixed.

Shelby Hennick’s grandmother Donna was hospitalized due to a negative drug reaction that left her unable to walk. In an effort to cheer up her grandma, Hennick snuck Donna’s dog, Patsy, into the hospital disguised as a baby under a blanket.

Her gesture of good-faith has been shared over 130,000 times, but not all of the responses have been positive as some commenters have discussed the risk that animals can have to immunocompromised patients within the hospital.

What are you thoughts? Do you agree with Shelby’s actions?
