All about Katrina
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 Katrina; I am 3.5 years old. I love my Mom and my Dad (my mom's son). I was his 12th years old birthday gift from Mom and she wants me to address him Dad (as if I could talk).
I have a friend at home. Her name is Trinity and she is a cat. I like to bully her and make her snaps me on my face. I enjoy that so much. I do not think she likes me but my Mom says she does because she caught her sniffing on my face several times while I was sleeping. Oh well. What can I say, we are best friends, just like those who always like to fight but no matter what, they are still best friends.
I am a good basketball player. I play with my dad all the time. My favorite activity is to bug my Dad while he is eating. He always tells me off and I keep going back until my mom asks me to stop.
I like to sit or lie down beside my Mom while she is watching TV. I always sneak on the sofa while she is not around to enjoy my day. This always gets me into trouble because of my hair. My hair is the evidence and I really wish that I were hairless so she will not realize it.
Well, that is me. I am happy and very naughty at the same time. My Mom loves me and I know my Dad loves me too.
