“gifted” does not necessarily mean “bright.”

i read somewhere that a dog’s sense of smell is something like a million times more sensitive than a human’s.  that long dog-nose supposedly has more than 200 million olfactory receptors (as compared to 5 million in a little, substandard human nose).

so here’s my question…

if a dog’s sense of smell is so great, how come my dog keeps rooting around in my dirty underwear pile?  and why do they make friends with humans by sniffing our crotches?

i suppose therein lies the difference between an acute sense of smell, and a discerning sense of smell.

i’m pretty sure there’s a spiritual application in there somewhere.  please feel free to make it.
