Monday Morning News

It's always amazing the sort of things that you can train a dog to sniff out. In South Wales dogs are being trained to sniff out mobile phone parts in prisons. As phones get smaller and easier to hide, they have become a greater security risk in prisons. With a dog's nose, even the most well-hidden things can be found!

This story is also about law enforcement and dogs, but from a slightly different angle. An officer picked up a dog to be impounded, but when the officer got back to the car the dog had given birth! She later gave birth to more puppies at a Humane Society shelter.

This may seem like a no-brainer, but a study in Indiana showed that a new baby can change how pets are treated. This doesn't mean that people with new children will neglect their dogs, but the pets no longer are the top priority.

Keep cool!
