Her name is Gerti. That’s for for Gertrude. She’s not a Basset Hound! She’s a nose, to find food, and a stomach to eat it.

All dogs love to eat. That’s basically how they get paid. But Gerti is in different league. She sniffs 25 hours a day to find food, to find any food. As long as it’s almost edible, she eats it, including many not so edible things like cigarette butts, garbage remnants…

BTW, she’s not looking at me but at some piece of cake that her owner is holding just above my right shoulder.
