You had to know it would happen, and Respectful Insolence found it:
“Scamp, a Schnauzer, lives at The Pines nursing home in Ohio – where his owner, a staff member, claims he has been present for the death of virtually every patient for the past three years. That’s around forty deaths, twice as many as Oscar the cat’s kill count of 20.
Deirdre Huth, Scamps owner, says that the doomhound always turns up in the hours before one of the residents dies, waiting patiently in their room until they pass away.”
Is it just me, or is there a wierd tone there? “My psychic animal killed more people than your psychic animal.”
Orac suggests several other animals that may want to get on the Clever Hans Bandwagon: Happy the Death Hampster, the Fish of Fate, etc.Â I was skeptical, but apparently Happy actually exists.
