While animals generally are not permitted in healthcare facilities, with the exception of therapy pets, that didn’t stop Missy the miniature Schnauzer from paying a visit to her human mom while she was in the hospital.
Missy, who lives in Grand Rapids, Iowa, with her human parents and Schnauzer brother, Barney, walked about 20 blocks from her home to Mercy Medical Center, where her mom, Nancy Franck, was recovering from cancer surgery.
Nancy’s husband, Frank, discovered that Missy was missing last Saturday. Then the pooch showed up at the hospital, where she was captured strolling through the lobby on video surveillance cameras.
That’s just another example of why dogs are man’s, and woman’s, best friends.
