I'm coming with you!

A part-beagle named Buddy didn't wait for an invitation to see his 85-year-old master at a Texas hospital.

The dog hitched a ride on the outside of an ambulance transporting his owner, Mason County rancher J.R. Nicholson, to Fredericksburg.

Ranch hand Brian Wright said on Friday that he summoned the ambulance on October 26 when Nicholson started feeling dizzy.

The ambulance had been driving for about 20 miles before another motorist flagged down the driver to say there was a dog on the side step.

Buddy was then put into the ambulance with the patient.

'It was a crazy ordeal,' Tanner Brown, an emergency medical technician, told The San Angelo Standard-Times.

'We didn’t have anything else to do but to load the dog up and put him in the ambulance and take him to the ER with us.
