If Earl Grey had The Bloodhound's larger than normal nasal chambers[Wikepedia] and the large and long pendent ears to serve to prevent wind from scattering nearby skin cells while the dog's nose is on the ground[Wikepedia], he could be my brave partner in solving crime (maybe I'll type "Larger" one more time!)!
Earl Grey's generic dog jowels can't compare to the folds of wrinkled flesh (not that "wrinkled flesh"--pervs!) under the bloodhound's lips and neck, called the shawl, that serve to catch stray scent particles in the air or on a nearby branch as the bloodhound is scenting, reinforcing the scent in the dog's memory and nose.
However, Earl Grey is still a dog and dogs have as much as 40, 000,000 olfactory chemoreceptors per square centimeter compared to our puny human amount of 10,000 (http://www.ndri.com/).
