the nose of a dog

“A dog can detect a teaspoon sugar diluted in a million gallons of water: two Olympic-sized pools full.”

Currently reading Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz. A bit tortuous when the family pup is half a world away, but nonetheless enlightening about dogs and their awe-inspiring talents.
