Man's best friend.

quote:
A patient pooch spent the last week waiting outside a Turkish hospital while her owner receives treatment before an emotional reunion.

According to DHA, a Turkish news agency, Boncuk the dog followed an ambulance that transported her owner, Cemal Senturk, to a hospital in Trabzon, a city on the Black Sea.

Senturk’s daughter, Aynur Egeli, said no matter how many times she took Boncuk back home, the dog would run back to the hospital.

“She comes every day around 9 a.m. and waits until nightfall. She doesn’t go in,” hospital security guard Muhammet Akdeniz told DHA. “When the door opens she pokes her head inside.”

Boncuk’s patience paid off Wednesday when Senturk was wheeled out for some daddy-doggy time shortly before he was discharged from the hospital.

“She’s very used to me. And I miss her, too, constantly,” he said.
