Dog Walker Jukskei Park – Happy dogs Duke and Tess had a lovely walk this morning. They could not contain their excitement, and were jumping about before calming down to focus on the walk. Duke was very energetic today, and curious to smell all the new smells in the area. Tess was also quite curious, but a bit more calm. There was so much traffic, and the sight of these dogs seemed to cheer the drivers up. These gorgeous pups got many smiles this morning. They were quite tired by the end, but still had enough energy to send their walker off with a proper goodbye.
Did You Know?
Your dog’s sense of smell is 1,000 to 10 million times better than yours.
Depending on the breed, your dog has between 125 million to 300 million scent glands — compared to only 5 million for humans. And the part of your dog’s brain that controls smell is 40 times larger than yours — that’s true, even though the canine brain is much smaller than the human, relative to size. A human’s brain is about 1/40th of their body weight while a dog’s brain is only 1/125th. Don’t feel too smug, though — an ant’s brain is 1/7th its body weight.
