The Nose Knows!

My granny sent me this story from teh BBC about the Double Nosed Andean Tiger Hound from Bolivia. He's very interesting looking!

Xingu the double-nosed Andean Tiger Hound

Imagine how good he would be at finding snackables! Of course I'm pretty good with just one nose (find the freezing box--sit in front of it) and I make primary use of my ears (listen for packages opening, fridges opening, chewing, swallowing, etc.)

This dude's name is Xingu and he sounds like an interesting chap:

He added that Xingu was "quite an aggressive little chap" who stood about 16 inches in height and loved salt biscuits but "wasn't a terribly handsome dog".

Xingu's best friend is apparently a wild pig called Gregory, and the two animals "rule the roost" in their village.

He is kinda strange looking! It doesn't appear that his mouth is any larger- just that his two noses are over it! Wierd color eyes too! hummmmmmm

Love ya lots,

He's amazing! I quite like the double-nose look and I'm sure it'd come in soooooo handy for sniffing out stuff. My sense of smell is quite good too; I can smell a bacon sandwich at the park from some considerable distance! J x

How cute. I could smell two cats at once couldn't I?
Worth thinking about.
