Speech in Speaker’s House First I went to speakers house, within the house of commons, to support the medical detection dogs team at a big event where over 150 dignitaries and fundraisers and supporters watched another display featuring these clever canine. If you've never been inside, here's a sneaky peek.

We also had the usual display of genius including wonderful Midas – something you’ll rarely see inside the House of Commons – a display of detection dogs sniffing out the right urine samples! And Dr Claire Guest gives her explanation to the group of fascinated onlookers.

The thing that made this so special is that little seven year old Archie was also there with his new best friend domino, the medical alert dog who now keeps him safe and saves his life. What must it like being his mum? Jane told us the story. This is an incredible video, because he actually alerts arch Archie halfway through. Here's a little of his mum Jane's speech - click here

Archie is a changed little boy - and he and Domino feature in the latest 'Sniff' - the MDD magazine, with more about their story.

They are in desperate need of fundraising to fund another cancer detection dog so in the week we had World Cancer Day if you can spare a donation please click here.

more to come
