All about Chili "Pepper" and Echo
Most dog owners are aware that dog noses are extremely sensitive. This is due to the quantity of olfactory or ‘smell’ receptors in a dog’s nose. Whereas humans have around five million olfactory receptors, dogs have two hundred and twenty million. This makes their noses exponentially more sensitive than a human’s. Most times a dog’s sensitive nose works to our benefit. All kinds of dogs are used as service dogs to help humans find missing people, sniff out explosives, drugs etc. They can smell people coming from quite a distance and alert us to their presence. There are some embarrassing occasions however, when a dog’s nose is just too sensitive from our human perspective. Most notably this occurs when dogs try to sniff humans in their private areas.
This behaviour is a common one in dogs and equally common is the fact that it upsets most dog owners. The reason some dogs sniff at a human’s private parts is the same reason they sniff the private parts of other dogs. We know that when they smell other dogs in this way they can tell the sex, rank (is the dog more dominant or submissive) age and other information about the dog.

Pepper is a very loyal, energetic dog. She loves cuddling and being a suck, but also has a major attitude if anyone comes near the house or yard. She loves sleeping in bed with me and often steals the pillow. biggest like is probably ice cream!
Echo is a very curious 10 month old puppy. She is very gentle but also very playful. She loves getting into things and then sucking up to the owners so she doesnt get into trouble. She can often be found carrying around a old pair of socks that she loves to chew on.
Both dogs are very playful and love to get outside for walks or chase each other around the yard
