They say there's nothing quite like the love between a man and his dog, but one loyal pup has taken it to the next level after she spent days waiting outside a Turkish hospital for her sick owner to return home.
When Cemal Senturk was taken to hospital in the Turkish cite of Trabzon on January 14th, his dog Boncuk, (which means bead) followed the ambulance there and made daily visits to the facility.
The sweet pup often waited from morning 'til night for her owner to come out, private news agency DHA has reported.
Mr Senturk's daughter Aynur Egeli even tried to take Boncuk home, but the dog would simply break free and return to the hospital to wait for her owner.
Hospital security guard Muhammet Akdeniz said Boncuk would come home every day around 9am and wait until it got dark. She would even poke her head inside when the hospital doors opened. The pair were finally reunited when staff briefly wheeled Mr Senturk out to say hello to his beloved pup on Wednesday January 20th, with the BFFs returning home together a short while later.
We're not crying, you are.
In other heartwarming dog news, a number of mistreated puppies who had been victim of neglect have been given an amazing trans-fur-mation.
Some were found with fur so matted, their breeds were unrecognisable at first sight - which left them with skin problems that required veterinary care.
Others needed emergency dental work to enable them to eat properly while some were found covered in faeces.
Adorable photos show Monty, a cross poodle aged around seven, Sebastian, a four-year-old Daxi-cross and Tink, a terrier crossbreed following their makeovers and it's giving us all the feels.
Ella Carpenter, manager at Radcliffe Animal Centre, said: "They really were unrecognisable as to their breeds when rescued but they are all looking great now and are a lot more comfortable in themselves.
"They have a new lease of life and are now able to move freely without experiencing the pain of those heavy matts, glued together with excrement, pulling and tearing at their skin.
"We will spend the coming weeks rehabilitating them and will give them lots of care and attention so when we are ready to re-home the dogs we can match them with a perfect future owner."
