Abstract

There are many accounts of the current strong connection between dogs and some humans. These accounts imply or pre-suppose a strong social-sensual relation between dogs and their humans. In a highly visualised culture how is this social-sensual relation mediated? What role does olfaction play? Autoethnography and 'mystory' are methodologies that can be used to address these questions.
