Dogs and People with Cancer

When my wife Harriet was sick our dog Ian became remarkably thin. I was never sure if it was because he was picking up on what Harriet was going through, or because I forgot to feed him for two months.

I feel sure that dogs can tune into things like sickness and in Ian’s case, because he was so close to Harriet, he suffered along with her. Looking back now I am sure he was depressed and this is why he did not eat.

The dog in the following video link reminds me of Ian – a wonderfully mad beautiful dog. Harriet got him for me, but he ended up becoming her dog, and the Jack Russell we got for her became my dog.
