Dog is a Crotch Sniffer – Pet tip 245

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.

It is extremely sad to think about your passing.  You were my bestfriend and confident. Now who will I tell all of my secrets to? It has been a couple of years already since you died but I still think of you almost every day.  When I think back to the tiny little ball of fur that Ryan paid 5 dolllars for and brought home for me I can't help but smile. Or the time that I was playing my music too loud and you walked into my room bit me on the leg and walked out.  You were put through all of the torture and excessive love that a 12 year old girl like me could give to you. But you tolerated it and still found it in your heart to love me the best out of everyone. You helped me through the most difficult times of my life and adolecence and for that I am grateful. You never told my secrets to anyone and were always there to let me soak your fur in tears if I had to.  I am so sorry that I couldn't have helped you when you were sick. I am so sorry that I couldn't see it until it was too late. The only thing that I am not sorry about was that I was able to cuddle you one last time before you had to leave me. I will always remember you and love you. No one else could have seen it but you were the perfect cat, no other will compare. I hope you are waiting for me, sleeping in some infinite patch of sunlight until I show up and you can sleep at the foot of my bed again.

Love and scratches,
