Bacon may smell great to a human nose, but imagine how it must smell to dogs. They have about 50 times more olfactory receptors than we do, helping make their sense of smell up to 100,000 times stronger. They can also hear it sizzling from four times farther away.

We might end up enjoying it more, though: Not only does bacon probably look greener and blurrier through dogs' eyes, but they have one-sixth our number of taste buds.
