All about Lela
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.

I am silly and fun loving. Very well natured and very over pretective of my mummy and daddy (And my toys!)
I like to sleep on the bed with mummy and daddy and love to watch TV.
I don't like bugs, car trips, big crowds and daddy's cousin (Aiden)
I am very kind to little kids and wont go up to them unless I am called.
I also love going on walks with mummy to the pet store to see the latest toys out.
Most days you will find me hanging out with my new neighbours Jack and my brother, Sire. We all share a huge back yard.
I also like to go over to Mick's place and watch TV with him. I like my new neighbours.
I am also blind in one eye due to a Corneal Ulcer. My vet (Which mummy says is a doctor for special people) said that he wont touch it unless it causes me pain. And the only thing he can do to it is remove my eye a sew up my eye lid. Mummy said I can deal with it coz it doesn't hurt.
