PLN 14

I read an article from USA today titled "Dogs' lives may offer answers" about how scientists are looking at dogs with cancer to see if there is any connection which could help with cancer in humans. They took 140 dogs to test different factors that might be connected to cancer. Only 15 of the dogs are still alive and they are all at least 11 years old, older then average for the 15 remaining Rottweilers.Eleven of the dogs are females and four of them are males.One of the reasons the dogs are still alive is because the owners work really hard to keep them fit.They take great care of their dogs and the scientists think this might be a reason that the dogs have lived so long with the cancer.The scientists are still trying to find a connection between the good care of the dogs and the cancer and the connection to people.
