Dog waits 8 days in parking lot for hospitalized owner

Rate this post

Lauri da Costa, a homeless man in Passo Fundo, Brazil, was randomly attacked when he was smashed in the face with a rock.

So he staggered to a hospital, where doctors discovered he had melanoma on his face and must be operated on immediately.

Though homeless, da Costa has a best friend — a faithful dog named Seco.

Seco waited for da Costa outside the hospital in the parking lot, expecting his master to return soon.

But hours turned into days, and days into more than a week.

Still Seco patiently waited in the parking lot.

Hospital staff eventually began feeding Seco and giving him water.

After eight days, as da Costa was recovering from surgery, dog and owner were finally reunited.

Tears . . . .

  8. This was awesome!! Last time I was in the Hospital for a week,NONE of my friends hung around for over a half hour. I’ll remember that if THEY ever have an extended stay in the Hospital,and I’ll be there for ’em,AND I’ll be sure their dogs get to be there to greet ’em in the Lobby when they’re released.
