No, I haven’t lost it (yet). Why then, praytell am I writing about Frito feet? I happened to be on Dennis’ post the other day and there was a picture of Dennis with green feet. And may I add, Dennis was not modest as he was not wearing any underpants. Jim commented that when Dennis is tired, his feet smelled like Fritos. Normally, I would just laugh at that comment and forget it. Then someone else commented that their dog’s feet smelled like fritos too.
I thought, there’s something in these comments. Could there really be something about dogs having feet that smell like Fritos? You would think if your dog walked in dog poop, their feet would smell like dog poop. Since they don’t flavor Fritos with dog’s feet, I had to investigate.
Last night when the gang and I were on the couch, and no one was around to see me, I lifted one of Tinky’s feet and proceeded to smell her little paw. No Frito smell here, but the back of her neck smelled like maple syrup. Since Tinky gets into everything, I chalked that one off. I tried this with Sissy. Nothing unusual with her feet, although I did detect a slight “dog” odor which means she is ready for a bath.
I put Jonesy on my lap and smelled his right front paw. Sniff…sniff….there’s a faint odor of ear wax. Then I picked up his left front paw. There was no mistake, it smelled like chili cheese Fritos. Not bad…Hey I’m getting something now. Next I picked up his left rear paw. It did smell like Fritos! After that I stopped as the rest of him smelled pretty bad. Whew!
I went on the internet to find out why dogs paws smell like Fritos. This is the answer I got. I am not joking:
“Dog’s perspire from the pads of their feet and their tongue. Smell your own feet and see how sweet they are!”
Are they kidding me?
