Smell your dog.
You know how dogs smell us with their whole being? Though we can only hope to smell a thousandth as well, we can return the favor.
Have you noticed that some dogs have a particular warm, nutty smell when they've been sleeping?
It comes from their feet. (Some people call this Frito feet.) Ears and other parts have different smells. Each is unique to your pet.
Let smells be part of your bond with your dog.
