Following my nose

There is something marvellous about being out of doors, something that reminds me that I am dog and hear me roar. Or at least bark.

There are so many exciting things to do that it is no wonder that I feel my inner wolf emerge every time I get into some grass or within sight of a tree trunk.

First, there is the most important job at hand. Scent everything in sight. One never knows when or where one is about to meet the love of one’s life, or at least day, so it is important to let her know you are in the area and never mind those other lesser dogs.

Then, there is the business of picking up a scent and identifying it. There are bird scents, squirrel scents, dog scents, human scents and all sorts of other ones, some filed in categories I call “Critters to be Avoided”.

Now there are times when Mum reckons that I have no sense. Well, she couldn’t be more wrong. 

I have nose scents.


  1. I like to scent things too - so many amazing things you can learn. Humans just don't understand the lovely world of smells like us schnauzers. Keep sniffing - love from Magic xx

  2. Ahh, your looking for a girlfriend are you Isaac?? How sweet. (: I love that photo of you, you are absolutely adorable! I'd love to just snuggle you up!

  3. The humans don't understand that we can smell about 56 million times better than them....they are just not in our league!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

  4. Hiya Isaac! You are definitely a Schnauzer like us, we love to furtle, that's what we were put here for, it's the most wonderful thing to do in the world isn't it? Dex & Lou xxx

  5. I wish I could smell as well as Riley and Remus(my Schnauzys). But I guess that would be a little distracting... oh well.


  6. Great play on words, Issac!
