Experts believe our sense of smell is much closer to that of animals than we imagined, but we no longer pay attention because our smells are often hidden, meaning that important sensory information is lost. 2 Our sense of smell evolved over millions of years and our human ancestors would have used it as a tool to spot disease, to avoid rotten meat and poisonous plants, and to sniff out food. However, as we assumed an upright posture, this lifted our noses far from the ground where most smells originate, diluting scent molecules in the air. Researchers said this could explain why people believe that smell is unimportant, compared to hearing and vision. 2 , many studies have shown that pheromones emitted from sweat glands play an important role in physical attraction. Dr Craig Roberts, a senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Stirling said : “We all use smell more than we realise, sometimes in ways we don’t think much about, such as when choosing partners.” Daily Telegraph, 2014 2.

Source 3 TEXT Every dog has its day: Crufts lets in mutts adapted from an article by Laura Dixon. 1) Every year, the great hall of a kingsized arena in Birmingham is turned into a temple for the worship of pedigree dogs. Thousands of canines are paraded in front of the judges, hoping to win the coveted Best in Show prize. But for the first time this year Crufts, the Kennel Club’s dog show, will feature a competition for crossbreeds and mongrels. 2) Alongside animals that have been bred to succeed will be Becky, rescued from the River Lagan near Belfast seven years ago, and Alfie, who was once so skinny that his ribs protruded from his flanks. After years of criticism that the main event has promoted characteristics that do not always make for a healthy dog, campaigners said it was a step in the right direction. 3) Crossbreeds are more likely to escape the sometimes painful exaggerated physical features or inherited diseases plaguing some pedigree animals. Some show dogs have skulls that are too small for their brains, or suffer from breathing problems. 4 the Dogs Trust and the RSPCA pulled out of the show, in 2008. The BBC also dropped the show from its programming that year after its request for certain breeds to be excluded was rejected. 4) The Kennel Club rewrote its breed standards, changing the wish-list characteristics that could lead to health problems in some dogs and introducing in-show vet check, after the outcry. Last year, six dogs failed the tests. 5) Clarissa Baldwin, the head of the Dogs Trust, said: “Clearly, the Kennel Club has done a lot to improve things. The first purely crossbreed competition is not enough yet – and not enough for us to return, but we welcome crossbreeds going to Crufts. I think it’s a brave move, it has to be good showing people that you don’t have to be a pedigree to be at Crufts, and crossbreeds have a huge place in our lives.” 6) Robin Hargreaves of the British Veterinary Association said that while bringing the crossbreed competition to the main event was “significant, in a way”, it did little to change the problems affecting pedigree dogs. He was 5 that people believed crossbreeds were always healthier. He expressed his anxiety by emphasising that two limited gene pools might not improve the animal’s health. He explained: “You really need genuine mongrels, a cross of several crosses, for there to be a big difference.” 7) According to the Kennel Club it was the right time to bring the ‘Scruffts’ competition into the main event.
