All about Sir Mooseton Churchill
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 came to my new owners, Gayle and David, just over two months ago and I am having so much fun! I get to go for a walk first thing every morning, then I have a huge breakfast and then it is time to sleep until they are home for a morning break or lunch. You see my owners are superintendents of an apartment building and I get to see them all day long as they go in and out of the apartment. I love to sleep out on the balcony and enjoy chasing the pigeons, but I never get to catch one. I have lots of toys that keep me busy and I get to play out back with Gayle and David almost every day. We go on long walks. David loves taking pictures so I will pose for him sometimes. I also like to play 'Furry monster' as David calls it and climb up on David and lick his face (I think I am getting a little big for his lap now...). So far my cherished memory is the first time Gayle and David picked me up... so many hugs and kisses!
