I will show you the article about the dogs. Are you okay with me sending it by private message? :-)

Hi Leah,

Thank you for sharing great informations about Diabetic Service Dogs. Dogs are great companionship to us and also extremely powerful with their noses of 300 million scent receptors.

I just read US abc7 article, it is possible they can detect Covid virus but still new and haven’t confirmed yet as they move to phase 2 on dogs’ ability to detect people actually infected with covid-19. 😁👍

This is exactly right, Koko. The Scientists are still working on how the dog's noses for detecting COViD and other health conditions can help everyone have a better life/stay healthy. Thank you for bringing this up. :-)

You’re welcome Leah. It is a fact our fur babies can be trained to provide exemplary assistance for our quality of lives.❤️ At the same time we want them to be absolutely safe and protected as well. 😁👍
