Oscar, the cat who can predict nursing home patients' deaths, got competition! Here's the story of Scamp, the dog of death:
Scamp is the live-in pet at an Ohio nursing home, but the Schnauzer doesn't just bring companionship to the lonely. He has an eerie gift that also allows him to bring comfort to the dying.
Scamp can somehow sense when the end is near for one of the old folks. He then waits loyally by their bedside in the final hours.
Scamp's owner, Deirdre Huth, is a staff member at the nursing home, The Pines, in Canton. Ohio. She says Scamp even tries to raise the alarm when he gets the feeling that one of the seniors is at death's door.
