“The dog sniffed his empty bowl.” 「犬が空っぽのボールをクンクン嗅いだ。」

Sniffとは何かに鼻を近づけて(もしくは何かを鼻に近づけて)音が出るほど強く息を吸うことです。匂いを嗅ぐのによく使う行動ですが他の理由でもします。例えば風邪をひいたときや鳴いているときです。会話で不賛成などを表すのに使うこともあります。

You can sniff something by putting your nose close to it (or putting it close to your nose) and breathe in hard enough to make a noise. You usually do this to smell something, but you can also sniff for other reasons, such as when you have a cold or when you are crying. Sometimes people even sniff just to show disapproval in conversation.
