Pet Tip

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.

Today I put down my best friend, Magic. You were over 17 years old and I know you had a long life, but that did't make putting you to sleep any easier. When i woke this morning and saw you could no longer walk or eat, i knew it was time to say goodbye. I took for granted you would always be there and now i have an empty place in my home and in my heart. I'm greatful Kathie and I and the girls were there with you when you drew your last breath. You are truly a member of the family and i would never have let you die alone. I only pray you didn't suffer. You are in our hearts forever. I am glad you were a part of our family and our friend. Rest in Peace and God bless you, Magic.  We will always love you.

 Kathie, Danny, Nishelle, Jennifer and Breanna
