Call it coincidence or love, but a miniature Schnauzer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, ended up at the hospital where her owner is battling cancer — even though the dog was originally 20 blocks away at home.
A surveillance camera in the hospital lobby caught the dog entering through the automatic doors and wandering around.
The dog, named Sissy, belongs to Nancy Franck, 64, who has been at Mercy Medical Center for about two weeks following surgery. Her husband, Dale Franck, 66, had been taking care of Sissy and her brother Barney, also a miniature Schnauzer, back home.
“She was on a mission that night to see her mom,” Dale Franck told ABC News today, “but she couldn’t find the right elevator to take.”
He said he noticed Sissy was missing around 1:30 a.m. this past Saturday, and he was worried sick.
“I kept checking everywhere, calling out, ‘Sissy! Sissy!'” he recalled. “I was pulling my hair out.”
