Maggie may be losing her hearing and her vision not as good as it was, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with her sniffer.
On our walk this morning, practically every blade of grass got the benefit of her snozz, so a ten minute walk took thirty.
She’s obviously picking up the scent of the foxes so we’ll have to be careful, but what amuses me is that it seems she sniffs out the exact same patch of grass to wee on as she did the previous day/night/walk.
I remember when MOH had his springer spaniel the girls had a peeing contest (which is not the same as the guys having a p1 5 5 1ng contest).
Jen would find a spot and squat, then Maggie would inspect it and squat over it. Jen would get the hump and squat again, and then so would Maggie. This often resulted in some poor blade of grass getting absolutely saturated in dog pee.
And I bet you never saw buttercups as Nature’s umbrellas!
