All about Gunny
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 love to sleep under Momma & Daddy's bed, and keep them up all night playing with my toys. I hate when Momma & Daddy hold my mouth shut to play with me. The best lounging place in the house is on top of Momma & Daddy's face. My favorite toy is my binky. Its a stuffed orange and green poke-a-dotted sqeeky bone. My most embarrassing moment was when my little brother Tank beat me up. My most cherished memory was when Daddy came home from Iraq. Mommy and I were so happy to pick him up from the airport. It had been four months since we saw him.
