Life Lesson # 11- Butt Sniffing 101

24 Oct

Professor Wrinklebottom At Your Service

I am not afraid to say it. I LOVE BUTT SNIFFING. Some of my human friends might think its disgusting but it gives me a world of information about the dog or person. I can tell what they had for breakfast or even what they are feeling. Humans greet by giving handshakes or hugs…dogs smell bums.

Butt sniffing at the dog park is quite a political venture. Much to know about the ins and outs of acceptable butt sniffing etiquette.

Here is what I know so far.

1. Beware the Yelpers- there is a certain percentage of dogs that will Yelp if you attempt a basic sniff. You might be 3 feet away heading in their direction then suddenly they Yelp like they have been kicked in the ribs. Then you have to try to explain yourself to mom or dad- avoid these pups.

2. Some dogs give but will not receive- These dogs like to sniff your rump but when you attempt a reciprocal sniff they jump on your back to dry hump you. Not my favorite thing.

3. Keep it short and sweet. Nobody likes a prolonged lingering butt sniffer. Sniff….get your information….move on.

I personally think there should be a mandatory course in a Butt Sniffing to ensure we are all on the same page. That would lesson confusion and would avoid many puppy conflicts.

Professor Wrinklebottom has a nice ring to it..Don’t you think?
