Mom found this article and told me I should share it with my friends, and then my friends could share it with their mom’s and dad’s.  I know some two-legged’s with food allergies and I agree with Mom– more people should hear about this!

And now I quote the article:

Allergy Dogs  Poodles, Labradors, and German Shepherds are being trained to save the lives of those with serious food allergies.  Dubbed peanut dogs, the pooches can sniff and detect a minute amount of peanuts or other allergen.  Then they do a little dance to signal their owners to steer clear.  Some parents say the dogs can even sniff the hand of a playmate to determine whether hand-washing is in order.  Google peanut detection dog to find a kennel that sells them.  Available: now.

Pretty cool, huh?  I think so too!

    Thanks for sharing this info. I remember about this pair of dog called Lucky and Flo that were sent to my country to sniff out pirated cds. Fantastic nose!
