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.

This is to my beloved Maxie, I am truely heartbroken, you were my best friend, you guarded and protected Liam and myself at all times.  You gave but never took anything in return, expect cuddles and the occasional bit of chocolate. You were there for me in times of trouble and sadness, dropping that big head of yours on my lap and looking at me with those big chocolate eyes, just saying that you understood, and that you were there for me.  You missed me when I was gone from you, you were always the last to see me leave and the first to see me return.  We spent so many hours enjoying walks in the woods and down at the beach, you used to run like the wind, so elegant, so beautiful ...... I miss you so.  You got old and started to get sick, I would have parted with the whole world, just to keep you by my side.  I had to let you go, it took me a long time, and you just kept on getting sicker, I just had to let you go.  I will never, never forget you, I hope doggie heaven will merge with mine one day, so we can be together at last and forever.  Your ashes will be sprinkled on St. Cyrus beach, where you were at your most beautiful, you were my 'big boy' and you always will be, your not here now to lick away my tears, I wish to God you were.  Bye Bye Maxie.


Now cracks a noble heart.  Goodnight Sweet Prince; And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
