All about Verdi
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.

Well, I must
admit I'm the smallest in size - but everyone bows in my presence - or
I will also admit Mom get angry with me a lot, but she can't refuse me
a hug and kisses. I sleep beside her every night.
love having skimmed milk for breakfast and that soupy veggie & liver
stew for lunch.
I also LOVE macaroni and cheese AND getting
my coat brushed EVERY day.
I can't stand
Grushenko, he's so spoiled and looks like a teddy bear instead of a dog
and I make him see this -
I guess that's why MOM gets so upset with me. I really try, I really do
try to behave well, but... I'm always the first one to notice if anything
is wrong anywhere.
Mom always takes me to town because I'm a good traveller on buses - I
even get my own seat!
