Dog Runs Away and Tracks Down Owner in Hospital

If you had any doubt about the loyalty of dogs to their owners, meet Cissy. This little pup ran away and tracked down her beloved master.

Cissy, a miniature schnauzer, ran away from her home in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She'd never run away before, but she must have missed her owner-- Nancy Franck-- who was in the hospital for 2 weeks with ovarian cancer.

Franck was undergoing surgery at Mercy Medical Center, just 20 blocks from home. Hours after running away, Cissy was found entering the hospital.

Security guards spotted the little white dog running through the lobby. They checked her dog tags, and got in touch with Dale Franck, Nancy's husband. He confirmed that the dog had been missing. The family could not figure out how Cissy found the way to the hospital.

Daughter Sarah Wood went to retrieve Cissy, but first took her up to visit mom.

"Did you sneak this dog in here?" Nancy Asked.

"No, she sneaked herself in here, mom," Wood said.

Mrs. Franck never expected to see Cissy in the hospital, but says, “I’m glad she thought of it.”

That is one dedicated little pooch.
