Your story is very touching. I am not surprised your girl knew when you were pregnant before you did. I am always amazed with how sensitive they are and what their noses can do. We don't have our girl Kacey anymore, (a German Shepherd cross rescue), but about six years ago, when she was still with us, I started to notice something odd. My husband and I always go for an after dinner walk, and he would sit on the steps leading to the front door, to put his shoes on. Kacey, who would be waiting to accompany us, would stand right beside him and sniff his left ear. I used to comment that she must like the smell of his ears! Sometimes she would whine, and we just thought she was being impatient to go out. About a year later, my husband was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer, that had spread to the lymph nodes on the right side of his neck, just below his ear! I am convinced that she was smelling his cancer. If only we had known what she was reacting to! The good news is though, that he went through a pretty brutal treatment and is still cancer free today. Dogs are amazing.
