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.

Yin Yang was an amazing cat.  She was more than a pet, she was my life mate for almost 16 years.  When I would be upset, raise my voice, or cry she was always there to comfort me.  Often she would try to lick my tears away and groom me.  When I asked for kisses she would lick my chin.    An avid and agile huntress, I never had to worry about mice, spiders or other insects.  Cat nip filled cloth toy mice were a big favorite for her and she loved to play fetch.  She would wake me up in the morning with a loud 'Mama' meow and drop this wet mouse on my face and wouldn't leave me alone until I tossed it across the room a couple of times.  She would continue until I finally would tell her no more. A wonderful mother, she bore 10 kittens before she was spayed.    After her first litter I had a waiting list for the next one.  Everyone she met would  fall in love with her.  This is when I first realized just what a mother was suppose to be - affectionate, protective, patient and a loving teacher.  The healthiest being I ever knew,  she was never sick or injured.  Her passing has left a huge space in my heart, but it is much less than the vast amounts of loving memories and insightful teachings that she left on my soul.  Passing away peacefully on April 15th, she lay next to me as I slept and as always there was a fresh wet toy mouse underneath her.
