~ Doctor Ben ~

Dogs are so intuitive......

Last weekend, my daughter visited with her little dog Indy. Ben hadn't seen Indy in a while but he would not leave her alone.  He followed her everywhere sniffing at a particular part of her anatomy.  Nothing too unusual probably but he was very insistent.  He just wouldn't leave her following her everywhere sniffing, sniffing, sniffing.. Finally,  I suggested to my daughter to just check there and see what might be going on.  She did.....and found a TICK!  Yikes...we removed that thing quick.  I was very proud of my Dr Ben!!

Here is the very nose that detected that nasty Tick!!!

And here is that same handsome fella resting ofter a hard days 'doctoring'

I love that guy!!

  1. That's amazing Chrissie. I've even seen on the TV where dogs can be trained to detect certain types of cancer in humans.

  2. What a clever boy he is. Brains and beauty.

  3. Loved seeing Ben on the sidebar of my blog, he's great!

  4. What a sweetie!!!! Glad Indy is rid of that Tick, big yuck.

  5. Bravo!! I'm always amazed at their smelling abilities!!
