    Dogs Detect Melanoma

    This is an incredible story...Dogs are absolutely amazing!

    Sniffer Dogs in the Melanoma Clinic.

    The quest to see if dogs could find cancer started with a Letter to the Editor in The Lancet, the highly respected independent British medical journal, back in 1989. The headline read: "Sniffer Dogs in the Melanoma Clinic?"

    I remember watching an episode (I think it was Amazing Animals) where a dog kept nipping at its owner's breast. He really became aggressive about it. The lady finally went to the doctor and she had breast cancer.

    Dogs continue to amaze me. What wonderful little (sometimes big) creatures.
