One of the pleasures of going back to London is the chance to read all the English papers the same day they are published. Skimming through The Times on the flight back I came across an interesting article which points out that a sheepdog has 200 million olfactory receptors in its nose compared with 6 million in a human. The difference is exponential - we are effectively anosmic - in other words by comparison we smell nothing . A beagles sense of smell may be millions of times more powerful than ours. It certainly holds true for Wilf and Digby who can detect lunch going into the oven from the very far side of the garden.
The first shirt sleeve weather today. The boyz will get a long walk this afternoon if it lasts.
