Two Sick Pups Walk Into the Hospital

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Two sick dogs walk into a human hospital and end up getting the medical care they desperately need.  It may sound bizarre, but it happened Friday at Christus Spohn Shoreline.

The two puppy pals are dog tired after their big adventure, in fact when we arrived at Christus Spohn Shoreline.  One was cuddled up comfortably under a secretary's desk.  Around 10:00 AM Friday the canines walked straight through the glass doors and into the hospital's lobby.  Like other patients, waited patiently to be seen.

Dr. Jim Cato and his staff decided to help the emaciated pups.  Meanwhile his staff gave them a little TLC.  Their next task, finding them a home.  The Gulf Coast Human Society agrees to take them in, if they can get a ride to the shelter.  So the doctor carries his patient and places him into the back on the channel 3News unit.

Reluctantly, the pups leave the comfortable back seat.  We walk inside, and place them in their new temporary home.  In just a few short weeks, the puppies should be ready for adoption.  But you better believe they'll never forget they're big adventure at the hospital.
