Cliff the beagle can sniff out a dangerous bacterium just by smelling patients--no stool sample or long lab analysis necessary.

Dogs give us so much, and we requite them very badly, I fear.

These dogs are awesome. There are so many stories of how someone's dog told them, in one way or another, about an illness they had. It might be helpful if we could figure out how they pick up on it.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Amazing! I've read of dogs sniffing out cancer; and dogs in nursing homes who "know" when someone is near death. This is pretty specific, and I'm hoping we can discover more wonderful things they can do in this field.
