Working Dog: Dog Sniffs out Bees

Is your dog bored throughout the day? Maybe you want to train him to sniff out bumblebees. Apparently in Britain bumblebees are going extinct! Researchers don't know why, and one of the reasons they're having trouble learning about the situation is bumblebees are hard to track.

Enter man's best friend. In yet another job for the dog, the scientists have trained a dog to track down bumblebees. I've heard that a dogs nose is 10,000 times as sensitive as a humans-if this isn't proof I don't know what is! No wonder I have such trouble hiding the steaks.

Anyway you can read about dogs tracking bumblebees here.
