Did you know how powerful a dog’s sense of smell is? Apparently it is equivalent to being able to taste a teaspoonful of sugar dissolved in three Olympic-size swimming pools. No wonder sniffer dogs are so effective. Thanks to the 1st Military Working Dogs Regiment for a fascinating visit.
The photo is of Mollie and Flossie, my dogs. Flossie (the Cocker Spaniel) has been described as ‘a machine for transporting a nose, at high speed, less than an inch above the ground’.
