All about Holly
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.

Likes: I looooooooove to play with the 2 cats, and lick their ears. I like sleeping underneath blankets or on top of warm laundry. i also like to ride in the car and go for walks.
Dislikes: I don't like having my ears cleaned out or my nails trimmed. Other than that, nothing else bothers me. I love all people, loud noises don't bother me, and I'm always willing to play nice with other animals. I'm a perfect dog!
Pet Peeves: I don't like anyone to pay attention to anyone else. I like all attention to be on me.
Favourite Toy: Balls, Balls, Balls! i looove balls. also, I like my kong filled with a little peanut butter. Any of the cats toys that I can't tear apart are always fun too!
Favourite Spot: Underneath the covers on a bed, or in someones arms.
Most Embarrassing Moment: One day, I went for a walk with my friend Bergen. He's a Golden Retreiver. Anyways, we stopped at the corner and he lifted his leg to pee........so, not to be outdone, I lifted my leg as well.....This wouldn't normally be unusual for a dog, but seeing as I'm a little girl, I looked kind of silly!
