Default Snorting and snuffling

I've noticed the last few days that Russell is making this weird kinda snorting, snuffling (almost sounds like a pig) as he's walking with his nose to the ground. Honestly ... I've never heard anything like it from a dog! And I spend a LOT of time walking with dogs It's like he's trying to get every smell he can up his nose? Anyone else ever hear this? I've especially noticed this when he's around water...

Yes, snuffling like a pig! Dudley does this on our walks also. I think he does it mostly when the grass is wet with dew, like on our morning walks, but I've heard it also when it has been raining. It sounds exactly like a pig and makes me laugh.

I have never heard my dogs do this. The only odd thing I have ever heard was a short time period when Billy went through reverse sneezing.

I love the photo you attached.

Is Dudley a puppy? Because I did a bit of surfing and I've found the exact thing on a Labrador Forum and a Beagle Forum ... seems to be common amongst scent hounds , especially when they are puppies. It is really funny
