I *HEART* Stinky Breath!

I’ve heard about a particular phenomenon with first-time parents who have become obsessed with the smells of their new babies: they love the smell of their skin, the smell of their hair, the smell of their little hands and feet. I admit that babies have a general good smell about them; however, I have also been informed by first-time parents that they even love the smell of their baby’s diapers…as a not-yet-baby-parent, I can’t say I quite understand THAT one. What I CAN say is that I love my furry babies’ doggie breath…and may I just say that it’s a stinky one!For some weird reason, I am absolutely obsessed with Pom Pom’s breath – I actually think it’s one of the best smells on Earth! I will stuff my face in her face just to get a sniff of it. When I get a whiff of that stinkiness, it just makes me want to smother her with kisses. Lately, I’ve started noticing that Casper’s got a little stinkiness going on too!

Of course, doggie dental care is uber important and I try to adhere to the rules of 3-4 times a week of teeth brushing…this is especially important for poor Pom Pom, who suffered eight tooth extractions last summer due to poor dental health from her “former life” (we’ve been trying to catch up on her dental health ever since we got her). But as everyone knows, 3-4 times a week of brushing your dog’s teeth is hard work, no matter how good your dog may be about it.

I LOVE the smell of Pom Pom’s stinky breath, but now an extreme feeling of guilt accompanies that love since I know how badly she needs to be kept on a strict teeth brushing regimen. So now I’m learning to cope with a smaller dose of stinky breath, and while I am happy that my dogs are receiving the dental care they need, I will always *heart* that fabulous stinky breath.
