Now I do believe that dogs can smell a neutered male vs intact male....same with females.
Maple Syrup smells good!
I wish I could've bottled that smell Bowser had when we brought him home from the breeders. Juno did NOT have a puppy smell hardly at all. (Then again, I suspect she was weaned from her mum too young.) Whereas, Bowser was with his mum and last litter mate right up to the day I collected him. Every so often, I catch a little whiff of it around the back of his head if his fur gets wet. But it's pretty much all gone...and he smells more like a boy now. lol
