CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Never underestimate the love between a person and their dog. 


An Iowa woman was recovering from cancer surgery at Mercy Medical Center and woke up to find her 10-year-old Miniature Schnauzer Sissy in the room with her, which she thought was odd since she didn't bring the dog with her. 


Well, it turns out Sissy had escaped from her house when the woman's husband came home to let her out for a bathroom break. The woman's husband looked everywhere, but couldn't find Sissy. But when he got the hospital, the mystery was solved. Sissy had walked 20 blocks to the hospital where her owner was recovering and let herself into the room! 


Both the woman and her husband said Sissy had never ran away from home before and they are amazed she found her way to hospital to be with her owner.
