Mom told me there is a great need for sniffer dogs in the NY. That the city is infested with bed bugs and dogs are being used to find em...anyone else heard about this?

but dogs sniffing them out? how cool is that!!! She said how they train them, something about a container with some of them in it. and oh i hate recalling something i heard barely, sigh..and of course other containers of other bugs. I wanted to know if anyone had seen a dog do that, or had heard anymore on this subject! Like how much does a bedbug sniffing dog get paid!?

A bed bug sniffing dog. Wow. I didn't know you could really catch bed bugs to let the dogs get the smell in the first place. Somebody google.com or ask.com and see if there is a story.

The bad thing is I started scratching and feeling little crawlies on me when I was reading about the bugs...lol.

I know their sense of smell is so keen.. so I'm not surprised. Bushwacker found my early melanoma. Chip is very interested with ALL the cemetery smells , when we visit Tom's bench. Now, I thought it could be the heat here, as Chip prefers the floor to my bed ..... I'll change my sheets now !!
