Miss Scarlet Belle Crane's Tribute
All about Miss Scarlet Belle Crane
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.

Miss Scarlet Belle Crane
Miss Scarlet Belle – Quietly entered our lives and added so much. Adopted from the SPCA-LA Yukon Shelter, she didn’t take up much room or make any demands. All she wanted was to be safe & loved and forget the abuse she had previously suffered.
Always loving and full of good manners! In her early years she loved to play and was quite a jumper – Leaping over the couch and coffee table in a single bound or seeing an old friend across the room and literally flying into her arms.
She added happiness to many lives including the elderly and infirm. She loved to have parties where she was the guest of honor. The more laps to sit on, the better!
Miss Scarlet Belle was chosen as Dog of the Day on the internet on November 18, 2000. She was "discovered" there and her picture now appears in the "The ASPCA Complete Guide to Pet Care." We always knew she was a star! She didn’t have to prove it!
Miss Scarlet Belle will be sorely missed. There is comfort in knowing she is now in Heaven and eternally happy in the presence of God and her great grandma Snoopy B. Crane.
In the presence of her family and friends, with love and dignity, slumber room visitation and burial took place at 10:00am Saturday February 1, 2003 at Pet Haven Cemetery 18300 South Figueroa Street, Gardena, California.
