The dogs didn't have brain trauma or cell loss why would a human?

Humans are more advanced than dogs, so I would think there would be some sort of problems in humans that either wouldn't matter or can't be detected in a dog, maybe not. :-?

people have been found brain dead but frozen by falling into lakes and such...under water for 20 minutes and brought back with no trauma at all. The trick to this is that they flush out your blood and freeze you before you are dead. Obviously you can not perform this on grannie and get her back.

I beg to differ...I think you could perform this on granny...also i think the only reason people think that we as Human Beings are more complicated then dogs is because we have thought capacity, but this is directly related to brain process and if no brain process is damaged then the thoughts and imprints left on the brain should stay the same. Now people may argue that the human soul maintains all these memories and "Cohesive" thought and I'm sure this is gonna be a huge mess to various religions who think the soul leaves the body open death. However, I believe this could be a huge breakthrough in medical science. People are no more complicated then Dogs except for out thought process but If this isn't damaged then there should be no difference at all.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I can just imagine the malpractice insurance rates for a doctor who performs this procedure.

The only catch I see is how quick does a dead person have to be frozen within? If it's plenty of time, then no sweat, but if they have to be frozen at the moment of death or within a short time span following death, that could cause a problem for this procedure. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
