a dog goes to a hospital to find its ill master

There's no denying the bond between dogs and their owners. A miniature schnauzer from Iowa showed just how strong that bond can be.

Nancy Franck has been recovering at Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids for the past two weeks following a cancer surgery. She and her husband, Dale, own two miniature schnauzers, Sissy and Barney.

Dale Franck said Sissy ran away from home last Saturday. As it turns out, she was on a mission.

Surveillance video shows Sissy managed to navigate her way to the hospital where Nancy Franck was staying. That's about 15 to 20 blocks from the Franck's home.

She walked right into the lobby and down the halls, looking her owner. The family still can't figure out how Sissy knew where to go, since she had never been there before.
