Keep learning from dogs
Seems surprising at in the year 2015, we (humans) barely understand the abilities and innate talents of dogs. Dogs live in the present moment. They know instantly, using sensory abilities to smell and to hear, far beyond our awareness. Yet how many times to we say, “Stop barking, Go lay down.” to our dogs? Is if we (humans) know everything they smell and hear?
- Can you smell cancer? Dogs can.
- Can you pick out the scent of a single man from a mile over a huge city? Dogs can.
- Can you feel an earthquake coming 4 days before it hits?
Dogs did! In the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake
Four days before the 1906 earthquake shook the city of San Fransisco, the horses and dogs knew something terrible would soon arrive. Records written at that time reported that fire truck horses and family dogs became uncontrollable, ran away or fought their caregivers. Four days before.
