Researchers are using neuroscience tools such as MRIs to figure out how much dogs understand human language and to test their responsiveness and empathy. Psychologist Stanley Coren, University of British Columbia, claims some dogs have a vocabulary of up to 250 words. Goldsmiths College did a study of empathy in dogs and found that canine companions consistently attempt to comfort people in distress. But Anderson experienced firsthand that if you have a conversation about your impending death in front of a dog who loves you, miracles might occur. Join Laura and Allen Anderson, author of "A Dog Named Leaf" on The Laura Longley Show as they discuss how Leaf saved Allen's life
