mbc1963 Posted June 15, 2007 Report Share Posted June 15, 2007 This morning, my dog was poking with great attention around the edge of this little mucky pond near my house. He was sniffing every millimeter of shoreline. After maybe 5 minutes of meticulous sniffing, he stuck his head into the water, and pulled out a bone that had sunk to the bottom. This bone was immersed in at least 8 inches of water, and was about a foot offshore. Do all dogs have such an acute sense of smell? I've had dogs in the past, and I don't think they could scent through water. I was impressed with Buddy's ability. He does love to scent things out - his favorite game is "hide and squeak," in which I hide his squeaker toy somewhere and he has to sniff it out. I'm wishing we had tracking clubs near me.
