Bacon smells great to us, but imagine how it must smell to dogs, who have about 50 times more olfactory receptors, helping make their sense of smell up to 100,000 times stronger. They can also hear it sizzling from four times farther away.

We may end up enjoying it more, though: Not only does bacon look green and blurry to dogs, but they have one-sixth our number of taste buds.
