The family Border collie is pushing 14 and her vision has deteriorated quickly. Ever since her vision got bad, she has had the tendency to try to sniff whatever anyone is holding when they come over to pet her. I figure she's trying to figure out what we have, so I always let her sniff whatever I've got, whatever it is. And before you ask, I don't walk up to her with food I don't intend to give her.
I letting her sniff stuff she won't be interesting in teasing her, or am I just allowing her to know what's going on around her?
