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.
