I don't know about you, but some of my favorite smells include the smell of fresh-brewed coffee in the morning, and baking bread.
But, did you know that dogs have smell receptors that are 10,000-100,000x more accurate than a humans’? This means they can smell things we can't possibly perceive. On this episode, my guest Rosee Douthett, shares an incredible story about her husband Jerry, and their dog Kiko. Maybe a fortunate combination of love and science explain how Kiko's gastric predilections saved Jerry's life....
