Schnauzer Walks Several Blocks to Visit Owner in the Hospital: Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Nancy Franck and her two miniature schnauzers, Sissy and Barney, live in southeast Cedar Rapids. Franck, however, has been staying 15 to 20 blocks away at Mercy Medical Center following a surgery.


Last Saturday Nancy`s husband, Dale, was devastated when Sissy unexpectedly ran away from home

`We looked up and there was this dog that was just running across the lobby,` said Mercy Security Officer Samantha Conrad.

It`s a surprise visitor no one expected: a dog in a hospital. Security cameras caught it all. Just like anybody would, Sissy wandered through two automatic doors and strolls right into Mercy Medical Center."


A hospital security officer used the pooch`s tags to call the owners at home, that`s when the hospital personnel discovered that the schnauzer`s owner was a patient at the hospital. Needless to say, the administrators allowed the dog to visit her owner in her hospital room.

This story illustrates the unbreakable bond of love between a dog and its owner, neither time nor distance can beak that bond.

Sad because you don`t have a human companion this Valentine`s Day? If you have a pooch you`re blessed beyond words and by no sense are you alone. Friends come and go, lovers will desert you for someone new, but your pooch will remain your friend forever.

Happy Valentine`s Day! If you don`t have a pooch adopt one for Valentine`s Day!
