Eco Dog Helps Bees


Did you know dogs are working to help save bees from Colony Collapse Disorder? Klinker, a Labrador retriever, is trained to sniff out bacteria that causes disease in hives. How great is that?

Bees may not be man's best friend but, as one expert puts it, "If it were not for the honeybees, there would not be enough food on Planet Earth to support life as we know it."

See Klinker in action.

Very cool that a lab (my favorite breed) is helping to keep the bees safe from "collapse".
