Muffin Marie's Tribute
All about Muffin Marie
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.

Muffin was and will always remain my true Best Friend. We did everything together and I will never forget her sweet little face.
I love you my Baby!!!
You were my world, you were my love
Now you are in Heaven above.
Almost sixteen years have gone by
Now saddness is drawn in my eyes.
It's not your fault, I know you tried
If my love could save you, you never would have died.
I am thankful for the life that we have shared
It would not be the same if you were never there.
And so my baby I say a prayer
That when I come to Heaven, I will see you there.
Redemption is sweet as you can see
It will once again be you and me.
