The comments you guys write never fail to make me smile and laugh out loud.
Today I not only giggled my way through your comments on my morning post about loving the smell of your own pets, but I was amazed at how many of you not only love the smell of your pet’s feet, but think they smell like some kind of chips or salty snack… Doritos, Cheetos, Fritos, popcorn.
Naturally I had to research this phenomenon.
When I typed “My dog smells like…” into Google, “Fritos” was the second option that populated! (“Fish” was number one.)
The most straight-forward explanation of this condition that I found came from PetAdvisor.com and said, “Dogs sweat through their foot pads. Just as the people’s feet sweat — and more often than not have an odor — so do canine paws.” The article goes on to say that if your dog’s feet still smell like Fritos after a bath, check the ingredients in their dog food. Their food could be the culprit!
Frito feet. Who knew?
I want to thank you guys for always being wildly entertaining.
Dinner tonight was just about as easy as it comes.
I filled my bowl with whole wheat pasta shells served on a bed of fresh spinach and topped with marinara sauce, shredded cheese and a sprinkle of parmesan.
Off to do some reading! For my fellow readers, we’ll be voting on the PBF Book Club book for the month of May tomorrow!
