We’ve all done it. We return home to find our pups waiting for us by the door, as if they knew before we did that we’d leave work early that day, and we make a mental note: this dog is beyond special, she’s almost otherworldly. The anecdotal evidence among dog-owners of their furry friends sensing future events is everywhere. Distressed behavior preceding earthquakes and storms. Advanced knowledge of sicknesses or pregnancies. Dogs that can sniff out bad people, bad days and even ghosts. The science around proving these claims has been much hazier, though, with most scientists concluding that rather than dogs possessing actual psychic abilities, they are simply animals whose heightened senses of hearing and smell (not to mention intelligence and empathy) give them certain abilities that, while not technically magical, are reminiscent of the same mythologies surrounding our favorite superheroes. So move over Superman, you’ve got nothing on Fido!
