Did you know that trained dogs can be used to sniff out cell phones?

Your phone stinks... quite literally. We can't detect our gadgets' specific odors, but dogs sure can, as it turns out. In fact, did you know that dogs, with their acute sense of smell, can be trained to sniff out cell phones? Yup, and they have been used in prisons to detect smuggled handsets for almost a decade...

Actually, a dog can do that without training.

I was chased by a German dog, never forgetting it. I think I've developed a dogphobia cause those little sausage dogs are scaring me too.

This story reminds me of a story I told my mom once. That they used dogs in Asia to sniff out shipments of illegal cd/dvds and she wondered how a dog could tell if the dvd was illegal or not, lol.
