    Being in the hospital can be tough, especially if you have a best bud at home waiting for you to come back. Juravinski hospital in Ontario, Canada has started to allow pets to visit their owners through a program called Zachary's Paws for Healing.

    Best friends having a cuddle, no matter what.

    The program was started by Donna Jenkins, after she noticed how much it benefited her nephew Zachary to be around dogs when he was battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

    So happy to see each other!

    Jenkins says that the visits do several things. It reminds people that they have a reason to get better.

    It lets the patients forget that they're sick for a little while.

    This cuddle is everything.

    It's even important for the dogs-it lets them know that their parent is still there, that they haven't been abandoned.

    Smiles all around!
