Stop and Smell: A Charlie Guest Post.
When we go on our daily walk, Mom talks about and enjoys a lot of the smells this time of year. She oogles and googles and swoons about the lilacs and the wild honeysuckle and even freshly mowed grass.
Sometimes Mom breathes in deeply and says, “Oh Charlie, do you smell that…. ‘yadayada’?”
I say, “Whatever…”
I would rather smell my friends.
Yep – I like to stop and smell my friends.
This is my friend, Oliver. He is one of my buddies, and this is how we greet each other.
Mom groans, “Oh Charlie!”
But Oliver doesn’t seem to mind.
And besides… he does it too.
I know they say a dog is a (wo)man’s best friend, but sometimes we just don’t see eye to eye!
Or should I say we don’t smell nose to nose?
