Well, not exactly. They now have dogs running around in nursing homes and are finding that the dogs help the patients calm down and give the patients a sense of self-worth. Trainers are now teaching dogs to detect the early warning signs of a heart attack, epileptic seizures and very low blood sugar levels. The dogs are taught to bark to warn their owner.

Dogs are even being trained to sniff out melanomas at very early stages.

One group of stockbrokers with high blood pressure were able to stop their medication. In these days of Enron and WorldCom, that's no small feat.

So my only question is, when the dog makes a correct diagnosis do we have to give it an extra dog biscuit and when it doesn't can we sue for mal-dogpractice?
