Scamp is the cutest dog you could ever never hope to meet.

The unusually gifted Schnauzer lives at The Pines nursing home in Ohio. His owner, a staff member at the nursing home, says he has been present for the death of every resident for years. As a matter of fact, once Oscar hones in on a patient, it usually indicates that they have less than four hours to live.
