Shelby has been off to visit ses parfumeurs préférés.
She has come reeking of her favorite scent, Parfum de Bête Morte, from the ancient firm of Charogne et Fils.
Why is that Jack, the dog with a tight, oily, water-resistant coat, never rolls in dead things, while Shelby, with her long silky fur, revels in them? He is easy to clean, but all that I can do with her is to sponge her with Simple Green. She does not enjoy baths, and I don't want to traumatize her.
There are two questions here, readers.
1. What product best removes Parfum de Bête Morte?
2. And why do dogs love it so much? Don't tell me that they "know" it covers their natural scent and makes them better hunters, because I do not think that dogs are capable of such reasoning.
