Any biker will tell you there's nothing like the thrill of the wind rushing through your fur on the open road.

While your average Jack Russell is more at home with walkies, Smudge has taken to motorbikes like a real road dog.

Father-of-two Michael Dyer, 66, fell down a 30ft slope at a remote beauty spot as he exercised Jack Russells, Mickey, three and Boz, five.

He fractured an elbow and broke his neck in the fall and lay unconscious in temperatures as low as 7C (44F).

Dogs can raise the alarm over prostate cancer through their incredible sense of smell. Scientists found dogs can tell which men have the disease just by sniffing samples of their urine.

They can pick up on a chemical made in cancerous cells thanks to a sense 100,000 times more powerful than a human's.
