In Dogs I Have Met, I write at one point about how when Brando was younger, I thought he smelled like Christmas cookies. But most people seem to think their dogs smell like corn chips. I mentioned this to my newly dog obsessed friend Elizabeth Crane and she thought I was crazy--and then confessed that her dog Percy had paws that smelled like corn chips. I was reminded of all of this today when I got an email from a reader who gasped at that passage, because she is obsessed with dog paws and their corn chip smell.
Elizabeth has a new book out today: You Must Be This Happy To Enter.
