In times of deep distress, there is one thing that comforts me like no other: a deep sniff of my dog’s fur. Cat fur comes in second. I just need to clarify that as a poodle, my dog has hair, really, not fur. And we keep him pretty clean. But out of respect for his really sensitive and powerful nose, I use unscented shampoo and conditioner. So when I take a sniff, I smell just that wonderful clean doggy smell.
Hot tea comes in third.
