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.

As I write this, you have only been passed for less then 24 hours and the pain is gut wrenching. Every single spot in this house contains something that I can remember about you. I feel like a large part of me has passed with you . I do not know what to do without you in my life.
I want you to know how lucky I was to have you. How special you were to me and how much joy you brought to my life. You make me believe in fate because it was fate that I could end up with such an amazing soul like you.
For nearly 17 years you remained my loyal companion and I want you to know I love you so much.
It was so hard watching you get older , and sicker and I am sorry if I ever made a bad choice with caring for you. I did everything I could to help you. I am sorry I could not do anymore.
I did not realize how much time we spent together and how much I did to help you until the moment you were gone. I feel lost inside because you and I spent all our time together. I am crying because I miss you so much.
Max, it was so sad to see you get thinner , and frail and have so many health ailments. It was so hard to see you lose that spark in your eyes and it broke my heart that even though you were getting sicker and in more pain, you always greeted me at the top of the stairs and wagged your tail when you seen me. You were my first dog Max, and you were the best.
I can't even put into words how much I miss you and will always miss you. I can't imagine my life without you in it. We grew together. You watched me raise my kids, we moved to all sorts of places.. but through it all we always had each other.
We could not stand to see you suffer anymore Max, it was breaking our hearts and when you went to sleep, we only found comfort in the idea that you could finally be pain free and happy and free again. Please know Max, that decision was the hardest thing we ever had to do and if there was any alternative, we would have taken it. I prayed that our vet would find a way to save you, and make you healthy again. I guess it was wishful thinking but I just kept hoping they could give me a solution to not lose you. But when she stroked your back and seen how frail you were and how big the tumor grew on your lip she told us it was the right thing to do.
Max, losing you was never something we wanted to happen and we tried everything we could to help you. I am so sorry I ran out of options Max. I would have given anything to keep you alive.
my tears will not stop flowing.. my heart will not stop breaking, but I know that I love you.
