    Claus, has his 7 First a Findings every year and we have 7 Deadly Sins from a Claus friend,( like he has any;)

    WELL Max, the wonder dog a/k/a poor excuse for a reindeer has....hold your breath...... 7 Nasty Smells that will make you hold on to your noses.

    Cachers here comes 7 odorous dog loving smells voted the best by Max and presented by a gnome of a Grinch Trainee.

    So without any more tail wagging or biting the big one let's take a little looksey

    Honorable Mention at Number 7

    Double trouble that comes in a pair, that Max just has to share. A blast from a past Grinchmas scammer those dirty socks from the locker room hamper. If you are lucky they are not left on the floor,to make you have to endure. These Toxic Socks contain, foot fungi and dead skin, much to your chagrin. It is a smell and aroma that only Max could love. Whether you be rich or you be poor, its makes a mention at number seven. Quite simply it's a smell to adore, that Max just wants more and more.

    Coming in at Number 6

    Humans are funny when it comes to smells. You turn up your noses at the best smells available. I love to discover what have you eaten, that does not need to be sweetened. Garlic, Limbuger Cheese, Anchovies Capers or picked Pig's feet, I love it when you breath is so pungent it makes my ears stand up. Breathe on me let me sniff, all I ask is for one small whiff.

    Followed Closely by Number 5

    Of all the non human breathing creatures out there Camel breath is a treat to behold. You try going a week without water and never brushing your teeth and eating what Camels eat and see what kind of mush mouth you get. Cow breath, Bear breath or an angry Elephant breath does not even come close. In fact a Camel's breath is like the smell of trash, a smorgasbord to us dogs.

    Not to be left in the Rear is Number 4

    Dangerous Gases. We as dogs can tell a lot by the way we greet other dogs. That may seem backward thinking by human standards. However, while you may say "A picture is worth a thousand words," my olfactory senses can smell an odor about 100 million times lower than you humans can. Do you think the fact that that I have anywhere from 125-220 million smell sensitive receptors compared to a humans 5 million helps? If you are my cousin Wilbur the bloodhound you have around 300 million. I can detect a gas leak from a pipe line buried 100 feet below me, so don't try to tell me I don't know what I am smelling.

    No better Perfume Available at Number 3

    What is it about Skunks, that makes people so paranoid. The mere sight just send you into a frenzy. We dogs like to try and catch them for the wonderful shower they give us, when we get them mad. We get a great smell all over us and then you all scream and hold your noses just plain spoiling it for us. To make this great experience even worse for us you make up all these strange concoctions and potions to try and remove this smell. What's up with that?

    A Nice Pair at Number 2

    Feet, love feet. Sniff em, then lick em, nothing better to smells better than when they first come out of those work shoes after a long day. Topped only by that special treat of coming out of a sneaker after a hard workout. For dessert of a smell those toenails that badly need cutting.

    And Santa JamM at Number 1

    I know Santa Jamm does not look to good, but I dug him up as soon as I could. Hey give me a break, you know how many bones I have buried that I skipped to find him first. Rumor has it he had a little too much of the fun with his friend Jack Daniels over the Thanksgiving period lost his way and fell of the wagon or sleigh or whatever he calls that stupid looking cart. Now that I have rescued his smelly old corpse, he should be happy the way he looks. I mean your beard will grow back so get over it baldy and rejoin the fun.

    A camera is strongly recommended in case you cannot figure out the clue at the cache site, or simply for review and research later.
