Dogs Love Disgusting Smells

Windy enjoys lap time after a hard day.

If an odor is bad, I guarantee it that your furkid will revel in its source.

Dogs have millions more olfactory receptors than humans. They can detect multiple layers of odors. This is what makes them ideal to detect bombs, missing children, cadavers, cell phones and much more.

The other day while I was on my back doing some yoga, Windy came rushing into the room. Of course I was touched. She came up to my head and nuzzled me a bit. (Oh, how sweet.) Then she moved like lightening and shoved her tongue up my nose.

My rational brain kicked in after I jerked my head to the side and said: “NO!” While she was in the living room, Windy probably smelled and heard me in the master bedroom. For some reason my nose was too enticing.

Afterward I blew my nose then took a shower. Windy, however, was not enamored with my mango mandarin body lotion.



About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
