All about Buddy
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.

Buddy is the apple of our eyes. He was born in a barn but soon found the bathtub. Buddy sleeps in the bedroom and doesn't bark. Only when he wants in the house or there is a squirrel in the tree.
He likes to play ball, scoccer, basketball and he will play let's not go into the water. lol.
He loves kids, but is a big suck when it comes to playing and when he isn't included. Sits when he knows you have his leash waiting to go.....
