Some dogs sure want to be by their owner's side in sickness and health.

A dog in Iowa, escaped her home and walked nearly 20 blocks to see her owner, who was in hospital recovering from cancer surgery.

Sissy, the miniature schnauzer, walked through Mercy Medical Center's doors and into the hospital lobby.

"She was on a mission," owner Nancy Franck told KWWL.

Nancy's husband, Dale, was letting Sissy and her brother Barney out to go to the bathroom when Sissy must have escaped.

Security cameras in the hospital show the 10-year-old dog in the hospital halls.

Hospital security allowed Sissy up to Nancy's room for a visit.
