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.

My beloved Goldie.  She was such a strong girl.  She never ever complained.  She survived breast cancer and a stroke.  She always protected my kids and now their kids.  She always let me know how much she loved us.  She was such a gentle friend.  I promised I would never let her suffer, and let her go.  She was not well for awhile now.  I think she felt she needed to be there for me, through my breast cancer now.  I miss her so very much and will never ever let her go out of my heart.  Your sisters Lyric and Ruby miss you so much also.  I will see you again someday my friend.  I love you.
