What is "The Sniff"?
It's a method of greeting that goes beyond a simple handshake
- or even a hug! It allows us dogs to be more intellectually
unintimidated by the each other. "Yes", we can say,
" I met Arfie, and I know he's a real dog just like me...
not all roses, but a real dog". It's very humbling on the
receiving end as well - a good social leveling ritual... humans
ought to make it customary.

The little known Peace Gland's found near the loins in most
dogs and humans. It's subtle vibration is a curious thing, as
modern science has yet to determine it's source. This vibration
and subsequent transfer of energy has led to recent reports
documenting improved heart rate and lower stress levels of both
participants - the sniffer and the sniffie. While studies are
still ongoing, it is certain that prolonged, continuous sniffing
of the Peace Gland contributes to an increased production and
release of endorphins, resulting in a sense of euphoria and
a more peaceful community.
Sniffing the "Enemy"
How is it that most people don't do "the Sniff" like
us dogs? They even get embarrassed when being seen holding our
leash in public as we do "the sniff". Dogs have learned
the virtues of sniffing and that often "the enemy"
is really just a dog that we don't understand and have been
led to fear. Usually a good sniff can clear up these misunderstandings
and foster a life with a lot less room for fear.
Glands are for Sniffing - NOT SNIPPING! Oouch!!!
Many dogs and people have encountered some sort of snipping
- from tails, ears, testicles, & foreskins, you name it...
someone wants it snipped.
NELLY! - If you are a HUMAN and are considering a vasectomy,
SERIOUSLY do yourself a favor and [click

doctors might not even know about this "simple procedure".
The odds for something to go wrong are higher than you think,
and the amount of possible long-term pain and suffering is worse
than you would imagine! (years)Read about what unfortunately
happened to a wonderful person and friend, Kevin Hauber, when
he went in for this "quick and easy 5 minute harmless procedure".
It is his wish to educate and warn men about the real dangers
involved with vasectomy.
