Dog Waits outside Hospital – level 3

28-12-2022 07:00

Boncuk, a devoted pet, spent days waiting outside a hospital in Trabzon, Turkey, where her sick owner, Cemal Senturk, was being treated.

According to local media, the dog followed the ambulance that transported Senturk to hospital and she made multiple visits to the front door. Senturk’s daughter said that the dog had been waiting at the hospital for several days, and when she took Boncuk home, the dog kept going back. After six days, Boncuk and her owner were reunited when he was discharged from hospital.

Senturk confirmed that his dog was very used to him and that he missed her constantly, too. He said that dogs provided companionship just like humans, they brought joy, and made people happy.

Difficult words: devoted (very loving or loyal), discharged (officially released or allowed to leave), companionship (spending time with someone you know and like to be with).
