The man's four-year-old mixed breed dog, Seco waited outside the hospital door for his human to return.

While doctors attended to da Costa's facial injury, they discovered a cancerous melanoma on da Costa's face and admitted him for surgery the next day. Days passed, but Seco never left; he was still waiting for his human.

Hospital personnel were so moved by Seco's devotion, they made sure the dog had food and water.

On the eighth day, doctors allowed da Costa, even though he is still recovering from surgery, to be wheeled outdoors in order to see his dog. The reunion was heartwarming.

Watch as Seco's tail wiggles with delight as he happily jumps, frolics, and lays out some sloppy kisses when reunited with his favorite human. If you have ever doubted the unselfish love dogs have for us, this will convince you to appreciate your four-legged friends even more.

The reunion was caught on video; it's guaranteed to make you smile.
