March Blog All About It - Favorite Scent

Blog All About It is a challenge being hosted by Anna@Herding Cats and Burning Soup.  Each month we are given a prompt and have free reign regarding what we chose to blog about pertaining to that prompt. February's prompt is........................


So I know my choice this month may not be well received by all, but I know there are a few of you out there that will totally understand it.  My favorite scents is PUPPY BREATH.

Puppy breath is when the pups' breath has that sweet mother's milk smell because their mouths are clean and they haven't yet developed any bacteria or plaque, which typically causes odors.   I associate puppy breath with bringing home a new life, a bundle of happiness, joy, ups and downs that looks at you with total love in it's eyes and is ready to conquer each day learning something new.  The puppy breath stage doesn't last long so you have to enjoy it while it lasts.  

Mr. Barb and I have been blessed to experience this phenomenon 5 wonderful times - once with each of our dogs.  Cicero, Barkley, Cooper, Booker T and Cassius.  They all brought joy to us on the day they came to their new home and when I close my eyes real tight, I can still imagine holding them in my arms and smelling that sweet smell. 

Apparently they even make puppy breath candles and I discovered several, especially on Etsy.  I think I may have to try this one out:

And here's a link if you are interested as well. 

So let's be honest, who else loves this smell?  Go ahead, admit it.  And for those I grossed out, I'm tempted to apologize but it is a topic about MY favorite smell so I don't think apologies are needed.

And as an added bonus, our third dog, Cooper, was born on this date.  Happy Birthday Cooper.  Hope you're having lots of cake and ice cream up in Heaven!


  1. Yes! Puppy breathe is amazing. I do miss that smell. It's been years since we had a puppy in the house. Oh too funny on the candle! If you try it would love to hear how it is. lol

  2. I've never had the chance to sniff puppy breath as I've never had a puppy in the house...or a dog for that matter!

  3. I just love the smell of a puppy! They smell so clean and new and yes their breath is wonderful.

  4. Oh so true! I definitely remember that smell with both my dogs😁

  5. The puppy is so cute! That candle sounds interesting but not sure it would be something I would buy. :)

  6. This is such a sweet post. I haven't experienced puppy breath since we got our first two dogs Sammy & Graham (a golden & a lab). Our others were fosters and adoptions when the puppy breath had faded :( My next pup will be a baby golden but it won't be for a good long while.

  7. ogm I cannot believe they came up with this scent! LOL I loved everything about my puppies so.. :)

  8. Puppy breath is the best but those puppy teeth are a different story. Ouch. It may sound weird but I like the way my dogs smell. They smell like love to me :)

  9. Ha ha! I agree, and the fact that there is a candle has made my day. 🐶
