All about Seamus
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.

My name is Seamus! I'm a good ol'Irish boy and I really like to have a good time!'
I like to keep active and one of my favourite things to do is swim! I've been told I am quite the elegant swimmer. Thus I like to spend my summer days relaxing by the pool.
In the winter I love to run and frolic in the snow. My most comfy thing to do in the winter is to be tucked in to bed under the covers on a cold night. Oh yeah, and "they" say I snore but I don't believe it.
Other things I like are chasing tennis balls, going for car rides, going to the park to play with my friends, having my ears cleaned by my girlfriend Chaylo, macaroni and cheese and carrots too! Oh yeah and snuggling on the couch; mom calls me 'lounge king".
