Last night, while I drove home from my local writers’ group, this story on John Tesh's radio show caught my attention.
Tesh cited CNN and Dr. Ann Schneider of the Eastern Veterinary Blood Bank (EVBB) in Maryland with most of his information. It turns out that dogs have six major blood types, but depending on the breed or mix they might have a dozen! Wow. Talk about some intricate DNA.
And some large breeds are universal blood donors—greyhounds, retrievers, labs, boxers, pit bulls, german shephards.
