You probably all have seen it, but I am going to link to it anyways.
Apparently he saw an opening at the gate in his "job" (he is a guard dog at a company lot) decided to go exploring, and was gone for two weeks. Then, after getting hit by a car, he walked himself to a nearby ER and even after being escorted out by security, he returned and laid in the waiting area.
How did he know to go there? The scent of medical cleanliness? Wailing sirens from an ambulance? Or just inner knowledge that there is where healing happens? God only knows. But this proves my point time and time again: Dogs rock! It also gives me one more reason why I love dogs and why I think they are the best animal ever!
P.S. If you have any trouble watching the video, go to the Weather Channel, click on "video" and then scroll down the "video on demand" menu to find "Dog takes himself to hospital"
