Man’s Best Friend. Dogs Can Smell Cancer

I’ve always known dogs are mans best friend. But I’ve always assumed that it is because a dog is always there to provide company, companionship, and a great way to meet beautiful women that have smooth neck skin. But, there appears to be another reason to love dogs. They can smell the cancer. Now, I am not putting down the great qualities of dogs, but if I had a dog to sniff out cancer I could save a great amount of money from my paycheck every week. Dogs have had an impact on the lives of men for a long time. Many novels have been written about the relationship between dogs and men (even clean ones!). My yearning for having a dog doesn’t really go past a blatant hatred for my landlord and his policies that dogs are the scum of the earth. But after reading this article on CNN I now understand that I am fatefully destined to own a dog. I am a smoker, I can put a cancer sniffng dog to good use in the near (or far) future.

    I’ll just stick with my cat. She can’t sense cancer, but she does this delightful trick where she just lies there plotting my death.

    Dogs smell cancer, cats cause cancer.

    Are you sure cats cause cancer? I remember reading that the number one source of cancer was babies.

    So because cats aren’t the leading cause of cancer they should just give up?  Way to be encouraging, alpha.

    Who should give up? You make no sense, Moon Man.
