Heel, then heal

A new study has proven that canines are imbued by Allah with mystical healing powers. At last, the humans have discovered what I have known all along. The findings indicate that humans with severe heart disease showed marked improvement after the mere presence of a dog in their hospital room. Their anxiety levels decreased 24 percent. Given this indisputable evidence of the healing power of dogs, a question naturally arises: When will you humans end this chauvinistic, self-defeating process of denying canines admission to medical school? Honestly now, who would you rather have holding the scalpel as you're wheeled in for emergency surgery: a well-trained pug or that goofball Patch Adams?

I recommend this article to those interested in learning more about canine healing.

I saw a great piece on TV about a dog who knew that his human was about to have a heart attack. At the time, the human had no idea why the dog was acting up. A few minutes later, the human suffered a massive heart attack. Several months later, the same dog (a golden retriever, I believe) was at work with his human when he wandered over to a co-worker's cubicle and began acting up again. The dog's human knew that something bad was about to happen to the co-worker, and indeed, the man had a heart attack. It seems that the dog could sense the rise in the level of enzymes that preceeds a heart attack.

Stop by any time, Miss Gayle. And please bring your Boston terrier, too. I would be happy to be a mentor.

Yes, JMG. I have also heard that dogs have the ability to sniff out cancer cells. The only problem is that human scientists have a hard time interpreting the canines' actions. But with some medical school and a few English-as-a-second-language classes, dogs would be much better equipped to save human lives.

Dogs are truly good friends. I have two cockers. They are very attentive to me when I am not feeling well. I have always felt they were the best medicine I could have in my life.
