After escaping from a walk with her furry sibling, Barney, and dad, Frank, Sissy traveled 20 blocks to find Nancy at Iowa’s Mercy Hospital – despite having never been there before! The security guards were shocked, Frank was relieved, and Nancy was overjoyed to see her beloved pooch.

“We could only stay a few minutes but I’m sure she enjoyed every second of that few minutes,” Nancy’s daughter Sara Wood recalled. “I’m sure that Sissy went home and told Barney, ‘Guess who I got to see and what I got to do and where I went?’”
