    The same reason a man can get a girl pregnant with one sperm cell injected into an egg in the lab, but goes ahead and shoots a couple million into her later.

    I can actually answer this. Sort of.

    1. It's greeting behavior.
    2. Also, dogs comprehend the world through smell the way we do via sight and hearing. We are intaking vast amounts of sensory data through our eyes and ears all the time.
    3. It annoys the humans.

    My dog is actually more interested in armpits than in crotches. Certain kinds of deodorant send him into a paroxysm of rubbing and sniffing. If you let him, he'll crawl into your lap and rub his muzzle in your armpit over and over, while he sniffs so deeply he sounds like he's snoring.

    A friend of mine's dog was all about leather shoes and desenex foot powder. He slip your boot on over his head and run about rubbing and rolling his head in the boot.


    Put desenex on the floor and he'd act like cats do with catnip.
    I wouldn't even censor you.

    I've had two cats that were/are definite pit sniffers.

    I've got a pound of ground beef defrosting in the fridge and two baking potatoes on my kitchen counter. What should I make for dinner?

    Crumble up the hamburger and brown it with some onions & mushrooms. Make some brown gravy. Split open your steaming baked potato on a plate and pour the hamburger mixture over it. Serve with a green salad.

    Chilli and baked potato.

    mini meatloaf, mashed potatoes is the first thing that pops to mind.

    hash is the next.


    (which is funny, as comfort food usually follows hash.)
