Everyone and his dog (literally) seemed to be leaving the hospital while I sat in the empty waiting room. I had thought this guy was just walking past the hospital but he came out of the building and got in a truck with his dog and drove away. I wondered if it was either a companion dog or one of those dogs trained to go to hospitals etc. to provide comfort to patients. Not a bad idea, I could have used a taste of that canine elixir myself at the time.
