Chloe’s nose. . .



and Wet.

Only Chloe’s nose knows nothing. . .

Apparently there for

 decorative purposes only :)

Gracie’s nose. . .


Dry and


Gracie’s nose knows

if there is roasted chicken

in a three-mile radius.

 Her sniffing-super-powers

help compensate for the fact

that most of the time she can’t see :)

  23. I’m just getting around to reading this now (been busy). Chloe and Gracie, what little sweeties. My little pup lost her hearing once she reached 11 years old, but she made us laugh out loud with her keen sense of smell. The tiniest whiff of goodies could wake her from a sound sleep–even if we were downstairs, and she was snoozing away on her little pillow in the back bedroom upstairs. They’re such joyful little things, arent’ they? And congratulations to the winners! How fun. –Lucinda

  24. We have a bichon named Aissa Diamonds …say it fast, Ace Of Diamonds – Her snout is my favorite! I sometimes touch her nose and wonder what dog’s noses are made of… can you tell we’ve never owned a dog before? These last 3 years have changed how I see animals- They are wonderful dogs– and it makes me wonder if I should take a trip to the SPCA to find a match for Aissa.

Thanks for your comments~ they make my day :)
