All about Storm
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 am just a ball of energy, and is still learning to contain my excitement when I see other dogs. Weekend is the best since my mommy and daddy takes me to the dog park where I can run with other doggies and make new friends. I am also a big foodie and try to find ways to steal food now and then even though I know I will get a good scolding from mommy.
I was already full-grown when my parents brought me home. It was tough at first since mommy set up so many rules and boundaries. I wasn't allow to jump on the kitchen counter to look for food or stick my noise on the dinner table to check out what they were eating. Worst of all, I am not allowed on the bed or sofa because I would take up all the space. Anyways, I learned that they love me very much and I feel the same way for them. I just don't like to be left alone at home, so I pull out my leash from the closet and chew on it to tell them that I want to be out with them instead of left at home for a long time.
My favourite lounging spot would be by the doorway where I can feel some breeze coming through the doorcrack and hear my neighbor doggies walk by. I don't have a favourite toy since I chew up all the toys my parents bought me, after been given to me for 30 minutes. Therefore, I only have chewed up toys lying around. Maybe they should just give me more bones and/or rawhides. Yummy...
P.S. Mommy sometimes calls me "big goof." I don't think I look like Goofie.
