View Full Version : Why do dogs sniff each others behinds??

Hmm, I've always thought it a strange way of greeting each other, but then all became clear when I read this wonderful little story!!


The dogs all met one Christmas
they came from near and far.
Some dogs came by Greyhound bus,
while others came by car.

The purpose of this meeting?
To fill the world with glee,
And put a brand new puppy
under every Christmas Tree.

But a special hall was rented,
and the landlord did declare,
he didn't want them running round
just pooping everywhere

So before inside that rented hall
the dogs could even look
they had to take their 'hineys' off
and hang them on a hook

Then once inside the meeting..
each, mother, son and sire
some cat dressed in a dog suit
began to holler FIRE!!

They all rushed out, that pack of dogs,
they had no time to look,
to see which type of 'hiney'
they grabbed off it's little hook.

They got their hineys all mixed up,
it made them really sore,
to have to wear a hiney
they'd never wore before.

Then, once the chaos was ended,
So did the dog's grand scheme,
And the kids who dreamed of puppies
were left with just a dream.

It's also why you'll see a dog
give up a juicy bone
to go and sniff a hiney
to see if it's his own.

:rotfl: Had to share that with you all!!

What a riot! With four of the beasties, I see quite a bit of hiney sniffing. Now I know why
