OK, we’ve discussed new car smell and where it comes from, and how it seems to be pretty much the same no matter what make or model. Now for a discussion of nature’s equivalent - puppy breath. Nearly every puppy I’ve ever encountered has had the same breath - a little sickening, but still cute because you immediately recognize it and associate it with the adorable little animal that is either biting you with those really sharp little puppy teeth or peeing on your carpet.
So, what gives? Why do all puppies have the same breath smell?
As an aside, this does not hold true for older dogs, the breath of some have been known to peel paint (particularly after chowing down from the cat box).
