Okay, I’ll admit: I’m reading that bastion of credibility, the National Enquirer. There’s an article about dogs that no one wanted, and how one has become a drug-sniffer, etc.
However, this little bit from the article threw me for a loop:
How is that possible? Can a dog REALLY sense when a heart attack is coming? And suppose the house contains more than one person. Can the dog differentiate? And how does the dog communicate this? Not every dog is Lassie, and not everyone would know that Timmy fell down the well, metaphorically speaking.
I confess that I’m not as up-to-date on dog studies as I probably should be, but I’ve never heard of anything like this.
