Sharing Sniffs with Friends

Tucker, Lilah & Jasper of LIfe with Dogs and Cats cast large shadows

This time of year, when I take the dogs outside in the mornings, they cast long elegant shadows. The low sun–while it adds little warmth to the bitter cold we’ve been experiencing–adds drama to the photos I take.

As if my dogs couldn’t create drama of their own.  (“She took my stick!” “OMG! There’s a deer!” “Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel!”)


Today’s nondramatic dramatic photo caught Tucker, Lilah and Jasper sharing a sniff. Because as soon as one dog finds a good scent, everyone else has to snorf it in, too.

I think it’s kind of like our human appreciation of a fine wine. It’s so much better to enjoy it with friends.

What do your pets like to do together?

  1. Love the oversized shadows! And oh, if I was there I would be right in there sniffing away with everyone. Happy B&W Sunday

  2. We love taking pictures of shadows at our pack! Great shot & wise words regarding the enjoyment of wine 😉

  3. Wish I was there to sniff whatever you were sniffing. It had to be good.
    Happy Sniffing Sunday!

    and the best is that such sniffs are endless and we can go back to sniff it again and again :o)

  5. What a sweet photo. Sharing sniffs sounds like fun 🙂

    Bailie and I enjoy a good sniff together too, but often times we prefer to sniff different things. Mom says we have different tastes in sniffin’.

  7. Oooo….must be a pawsome smell! Can I get a sniff?

    LOL! I can so relate to the 3-dog sniff. Happens all the time here too. Love the play of shadow on the grass.

  9. We sleep together…a lot! ~Wally & Ernie

    My two play together…endless, noisy, shouty play – the kind of play where, if you just heard them, without seeing them, you’d think they were killing each other – when in reality, it’s mainly Willow on her back snaffling Harvey’s ears – and Harvey screeching at the indignity of it all!

  11. Wondering what kind of scent 🙂 Happy Sunday. Golden Woofs

    My favorite activities with my elite group of canine friends include mostly snuggling and stealing each other’s bones! BOL! *wags* – Gilligan from

  14. I just love your comments with this photo, and the photo is fantastic!

  15. Mauja and Atka agree 🙂

  16. Mr. N and Sage like to find interesting scents together too but they’re not always ones the humans find appealing!

    Some of us enjoy napping together or bathing each other. We only collaborate, however, if a critter (like a mouse) should get in the house. Dogs we are not. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
