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.

To Max

(aka: the furry slug, romper stomper, mr. maxwell, maximilian, maxi-taxi, the taxadermist, baba, my sweet, my little guy, maxwellian of the north, sweet pea, maxwell p. carlson...)

     Thank you for being part of my life.  I was so fortunate to have you - you were always there for me & you gave me strength during my tough times. We had such a strong bond - I always felt like we knew exactly how each other was feeling.  I will forever miss your adorable personality (how purred & kneaded your beloved furry blankets, how you nuzzled into the crook of my elbow when I held you, how you'd sit on top of my head when you were a kitten & I was on the computer, how you always begged for food, how you would roll onto your back & stretch-out, whenever you slept in your wrought-iron bed, how you loved to be outdoors, &, the one & only time you willingly jumped into the cute feather-trimmed carrier I got for you - on your own!).You were my closest companion  over the past 10.5 years & you will be forever missed!

You were the best gift I ever received, little romper stomper!

With love, always! Blessings, beautiful one!

-Cheryl
