Maybee Knot Rozga's Tribute
All about Maybee Knot Rozga
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.

Maybee: We love you! This is one fact that will never change in your family's eyes, even though you're now gone. You were my best friend in the whole world. Whenever I needed to hold someone, you were there for me. Through the tears, fights, and just cuddle time, you were there. Although sometimes you gave us the "If I sit here and let you do this, will you go away?" face. Mom will miss those eyebrows of yours. You brought life and personality to an animal, that I never knew one could have. You were not my pet; you were my sister, my friend. You were Mom and Dad's fourth child (the only one who every listened), Molly's sister, and an aunt to your niece and nephews. This is what made you the light of our worlds. I know we didn't always show it, but you truly were. Sometimes you'd get into some trouble, like when you'd eat photographs, toys, important papers/mail, and even the cover to one of Mom's vinyl records. I will cherish the weekends we got to spend together when Mom and Dad went away. You'd just snuggle with me on the floor (secretly on their bed). Maybee, you protected us from all the evil out in the world. Well, unless it didn't scare you first. One of my favorite stories is when Dad came home wearing a raincoat and you thought he was breaking in. You stood your ground hair raised and teeth shown, making it known you'd let nothing happen to us. I love you more than words Maybee. Thank you for being my puppy the last few weeks of your life doing "Batdog" again.
We'll miss you!
Have fun in heaven with Grandma! She crosses her arms just like you.
