Taxi the seizure predicting dog

I had no idea dogs could be trained to predict seizures.

Chalk up another win for the canine.

I have epilepsy, one of the big dangers is falling during a seizure. I broke my jaw once.
If these dogs can do only that it's a huge benefit. Thumbsup

Hey KC.
Check out the Aussie film Red dog. When I was a bush kid I heard stories about that dog. Amazing. Great film.

Once during my bush kid life my only mates were twenty six dogs. We went everywhere together. There were no kids anywhere.

I remember those friends fondly. Smile

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

technically, they don't really train dogs to predict seizures. They don't know what the dog is reacting to, so there is no way to train them to react to it.

What they do is train humans to recognize an abnormal behavior from the dog as an indicator that the dog is trying to communicate something. Some dogs will suddenly jump on and off a bed, acting strangely. OR become uncharacteristically whiny and restless.
Either way, dogs are awesome

I think it's amazing that dogs can detect cancer. I mean, wow.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Fact: Dogs kill more people a year than sharks.

I can forgive them though because they save us more than kill us.

A good friend of ours has one. While he was on a bus with the dog, it began barking, someone seated elsewhere had a seizure.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

The noise itself could have been the trigger.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Some people need killing.

The dog began to bark before the person had a seizure -- several stops before in fact.
