Inali is a sweet 5-year-old Pitbull mix. Already housetrained she enjoys playing with her toys. Inali likes people, loves to be pet, but is particular about the dogs she associates with. She is looking for a forever home. Come out and meet her you will be charmed.
Satch here, I’m Watson’s nephew, and I am very nosey. In fact, I’m so nosey I got a bee sting on the end of my nose, which was quite uncomfortable and meant a trip to the vet. The plus side was I did find out a lot about my nose.
I have a wonderful stereoscopic nose. Stereoscopic means I can move each side of my nose independently, which allows me to smell separately with each nostril. Another amazing thing about my nose is I have an organ that humans do not have!
The Jacobson’s Organ is a cavity in the back of the nose. Air flows into the cavity allowing me to study smells. The way it works is that when I exhale some of the air is retained in the Jacobson’s Organ. When I inhale, new air flows into it and builds up a stronger scent. I can actually savor and identify the smell.
The tiny slits on the side of my nose are where I exhale. I inhale through the nostrils at the front of my nose. Inhaling and exhaling at the same time allows me to sniff continuously for long periods. By doing this I create a picture of the world through smell.
Dogs do not have the same judgment about smells that humans do. That is why smelling poop or other dog’s butts doesn’t gross us out. Smells just inform us of what is happening around us.
My nose is so cool I can figure out time. Newer odors are stronger and older odors are weaker. To tell the future, I sniff a breeze from up ahead so I know what is coming. I don’t need a watch, but I need to watch out for bees or as Watson would say, “Mind my own bees wax.”
LOOKING FOR A HOME
We have 18 adorable kittens: 10 boys and eight girls. We also have seven puppies: two boys and five girls. All our babies need foster homes. Call 775-423-7500 for details.
Policy, however, prohibits adopting out puppies or kittens under the age of six months to a home with children under 5 years of age. This is to protect both the children and the animal.
