Ever since I saw a news story that said dogs can sniff out cancer, I've been worried spitless every time my dog starts sniffing around one of my body parts. Not that that's ever a good sign anyway, but usually it just signals the need of a good hott shower.
The other day she was laying on the floor sound asleep and I sat down next to her. She didn't budge. Then I pulled up my pant leg and started scratching the back of my calf because my skin is so dry. My dog immediately got up and started sniffing where I was scratching.
I'm like, "Hey, no big deal, Dog. I have dry skin in the winter like a zillion other people, don't turn it into cancer, Dog!" Then when she kept sniffing, it bugged me so much I called Mr. G into the room and showed him.
He watched for a few seconds, then said, "It doesn't look like she's smelling your calf so much as your fingers where you're scratching."
I said, "Oh, I just finished eating a chocolate chip cookie. Never mind."
