A Dog's Nose Saves It's Owner's Life

Two years ago, Lauren Gauthier saved a pup’s life by rescuing her from an animal shelter. Imagine her surprise when, months later, Victoria the dog returned the favor, putting her keen nose to use and sniffing out skin cancer that Lauren had assumed was a pimple or a clogged pore on her right nostril. “Whenever I’d sit down on the couch, she’d cuddle next to me and start sniffing that little spot on my nose, then she’d sit and stare at me,” says Lauren, who’s from East Amherst, New York. Lauren was shocked when a biopsy revealed that she had basal cell carcinoma. Lauren says, “I’m so grateful to Victoria — as you can imagine, she’s received lot of treats and hugs.”
