Can't you imagine the phone call? "Hi.. Mr. Owen.. this is Lifelabs calling. We tested your saliva sample and Waldo confirms its coved-19".
Mr Owen : "Right!... may I please speak to Dr. Waldo".
Lab person: "I'm sorry Mr. Owen but Waldo is out in the back yard sniffing the grass. We anticipate he will be doing a number 2 any moment.

I dunno Don, that might be backwards.... the article mentions 94% and "near 100% accuracy."   

Maybe the pooches will allow labs can go back to whatever they were doing before covid..... but, I suppose that would mean that the "system" would then be doing stuff that was un-necessarily postponed/canceled [at least in my part of the world].  wink

This assumes that dogs can't get infected. They won't wear masks.

Maintaining the tradition of putting the needs of Human before the needs of animals.

Very interesting.  My main job as a Marine Engineer was finding land mines (IEDs).  We had a saying that "the best mine detector is an alert Marine".  I guess we will now have to revise that to the "best mine detector is a big ole rat".

That was a cute rat!

Back when mad cow was a thing, I seem to recall some wag or other proposing driving herds of infected cows across minefields.... kill two birds with one stone I suppose.

It would definitely work.  When I was in Viet Nam I got a work order to clear a minefield north of DaNang at the Hai Van pass.  I had no intentions of doing it because my classmate at Engineer's School in Camp LeJeune had lost both legs and an eye clearing a field in Viet Nam.  I wasn't going to be in that situation.  But I wanted to assess the situation so I took about six of my men up there to see what was going on and see if we could possibly clear it without going out into the field.  The Army captain that was in charge told me that the Army had laid the mines, but they didn't bother to make a mine field chart.  I told him without that I couldn't clear it.  I then asked him if he knew about how many mines were out there and he said "no, but we know they are still there because occasionally a cow steps on one and it goes off".

Ever step on a cow flop on a hot day in your bare feet? A minor annoyance compared to a land mine!
