Bau: Sense of Smell

I love my morning walks. My new environment is a lot different from my old one and I am beginning to discover all sorts of interesting smells which is super tremendously stimulating.

The percentage of the dog’s brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is actually 40 times larger than that of a human! It’s been estimated that dogs can identify smells somewhere between 1,000 to 10,000 times better than nasally challenged humans can.

  1. Oh, Bau, there is so much you’re aware of because of your amazing sense of smell! I’ll bet you even know when your mom is home before she even parks her car. I know that my dogs always know…

  2. If you met my dog…. I’ve watched her standing in our back garden for three or more minutes at a time with her nose pointed aloft and her head turning like she was a radar beacon. Dogs are phenomenal creatures, they really are!
