Have you ever noticed how your dog seems to be able to sense when you are down or not feeling well? They usually want to cuddle with you and take care of you. There was a story that circulated on the Internet recently about a woman who had cancer. When she lay down to take a nap, she awoke to find herself covered in dog toys, the precious treasures her dog had brought from his toybox in the basement. How do they do it? Recent research is pointing to their awesome sense of smell.
