All about Chews
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 Name is Chews and I think I'm a little princess. I love going to the park to play with the neighborhood kids. I also have dog friends that live beside me that are fun to play with. Their names are Missy and Zeuss. I have my own bed in my owners room but I still jump in bed with them once they are asleep.
My favorite toy is my squeak bear, although I like my bone too. I don't hate cats, but I will chase them if I can because I love to run. I really like to be chased too!
The thing I really hate is rainy days. No one wants to come outside and play with me.
I have a new friend at home. Her name is Xena. She gets into lots of trouble which means I am the best dog in the house. Check out her site!
