Someone recently said ‘puppies feet smell like Fritos’.
What absolute brilliance! I had never, on earth, thought much of anything other than puppies have that ‘puppy’ smell that is utterly addictive. When she said ‘Dogs feet smell like Fritos’, there honestly had to be a cartoon light bulb over my head that lit up! THAT’S why I snuggle him so much, and brave the challenge of putting my face within reach of those those needle sharp puppy teeth. I mean honestly, if you’ve ever had a Frito, you know that you never eat just one!
Then I got to thinking about puppy breath. As kooky as that sounds, I dare anyone to say they don’t just LOVE puppy breath. There are those who don’t like dogs, but even the most callous of canine critic has to admit puppies smell good. In my opinion, it’s like standing over the crib of my newborn babies and drinking in the sweet smell that rises up from their pure, newly arrived little bodies. Just like that newborn smell, puppy breath is just….addictive. It’s not the smell of Fritos mind you, but certainly just as compelling and addictive.
Then it hit me the other morning while brewing a cup of rich, dark roast morning cup of coffee: Little Misters breath smells like my freshly brewed dark coffee!
Honestly, I feel like I’ve solved one of the mysteries of the Universe…
Why are puppies are like an addictive drug for the nose?
Answer: Fritos and Coffee.
Now, where’s my Nobel Prize?
