We have in the past blogged about our "Director of Sniff Testing" - Clifton, my Irish Setter. For those who know me, it is abundantly clear that I have a love for and a fascination with dogs (and other animals.) So as a trained engineer who is proud of the innovation and software engineering we do at Alpha, I was both enthralled and humbled when I came across this wonderful PBS NOVA program on Dogs that describes the engineering genius behind the design of the dog's sense of smell. It serves as a great reminder of the wonder of nature and the magic and brilliance of the engineering systems that exist in our natural world.
I hope you enjoy the link and the program as much as I did and if you have any stories about your dog's sense of smell, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Woof!
