    Cool Dogs can detect cancer, amazing!

    I've read a blog and found out how amazing the dog's senses are. They can smell cancer such as lung cancer on a patient's breath and can detect prostate cancer by sniffing the patient's urine. Some doctors laughed at this matter but it turned out that dogs can be more accurate than some lab tests.

    Cool, eh? I know that over the years various of my dogs have alerted me to issues in other of my dogs when they spend a longer time than normal sniffing a particular spot. It's amazing how good their sense of smell is.

    When Darby had his back problems, Cash kept sniffing his back in one particular spot. When the vet came to look at Darby, it turned out that the irritation was right where Cash had been sniffing.

    Brian and I think Odie is a cancer detecting dog. Now, hes never detected Cancer! but he has detected many things with either Rusty or Baxter or our cat Angel, things we never saw. He even detected Brians (yuck warning) toe fungus issue. His nose is always going.

    Lance and Flossy are food-detecting dogs then

    Well, maybe there's nothing yet to detect.
