Maureen Burns thought that she was losing her dog, Max, because he was acting so sad and listless. But Max wasn’t dying. In fact, he was sad because he sensed something about Maureen that she didn’t know. . .something her doctors didn’t even know. But Max was right, and Maureen trusted him enough to pursue more medical testing, which probably saved her life.
This great clip from the BBC show “The Secret Life of Dogs” focuses on the amazing senses of our favorite animals. They know much more than we can ever know, and scientists are trying to make the best use of such sensitive noses.
