CHICAGO (CBS) – Experts have proven that dogs can lower our blood pressure, ease stress and sense impending disaster. They can also comfort victims of disaster, provide eyesight for the blind and even warn humans of impending seizures. So it should not come as any surprise that some dog owners/lovers believe there is a higher, possibly divine power at work in their canine companions.
“People have had spiritual epiphanies through animals,” said Jennifer Skiff, author of “The Divinity of Dogs: True Stories of Miracles Inspired by Man’s Best Friend.” Skiff, an award winning international journalist and former investigative correspondent for CNN, compiled stories from all around the world. “These stories are pretty amazing. Every day we experience something pretty amazing with our dogs, but these go way over the top.”
