What Dogs Smell

For Emma.

When dogs smell, they smell in vivid color. They smell every hue of days past and days to come. When dogs smell, they smell the eons, every forefather and foremother who has ever peed. When dogs smell, they smell the beginning of time, the history of their race and of humanity, too. When dogs smell, they follow every trace of the Creator’s touch. When dogs smell, they do not smell rot or stench or death. Even bad smells smell good, for dogs smell redemption.

  1. Emma loves you and so do I.

  2. It’s possible that she loves the way I smell even more than you do?!

  3. Even when they don’t understand us they are always there always by our side. The least we can do is to understand them even when they are smelling every corner of our house 🙂
