Owner Says Dog Found Her Cancer
Withers said her dog, Myles, was not afraid to speak up when he thought something was wrong. He did it over and over again to her, reported WCAU-TV in Philadelphia.
"He would jump up and forcefully put his nose right into my arm area, and he would be flipping my arm up, and he would jab me toward my breast and underneath my arm," Withers said. "Then he would bark and bark in a frantic-sounding way."
After six weeks of this routine, Withers began to wonder if something was wrong.
"I started feeling around, and I felt this bead. It felt like a pearl, like a hard pearl, and so it alarmed me," Withers said. "A day or so later, I went to have a mammogram and I was diagnosed with breast cancer."

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

I have seen shows on dogs detecting cancer.. but they are trained for it, not just doing it naturally.
It makes a lot of sense that they can smell something that is not right. Interesting story.
