Talking i finally smell it...

I have read people saying their bassets smell, specially their feet while they sleep smelling like fritos. Edee has not been a smeller, just a typical dog smell. But 5 minutes ago Edee was snoozing on her pillow by the couch and instead of smelling hound farts, I smelt fritos! I have a real basset hound!

Can somebody please explain to me what Frito's are, I need to know the equivalent for the Uk, I always say Bella smells of biscuits, but then she's not a proper Basset so she should smell of bagels .

LOl I asked the same thing. Fritos are a kind of corn chip. I know what you mean by the digestive biscuit - wonder if our N. American friends know that smell? It seems our hounds are sweet and across the pond they're savoury

I think Digestive Biscuit = Graham Cracker, or so I believe. Benson is half wotsit half popcorn smell. The longer between baths the more wotsit he becomes.

Rofl I didn't say digestive biscuit, but that is exactly what she smells like, when she doesn't smell of fox poo.

Must be something in the water.

Never seen a Frito here - maybe they have them in the food hall at Harrods
Yep a digestive Biscuit is a bland cookie that you have with tea. The nicer ones are covered in chocolate

Reminds me of when my husband and I first got together (British girl, American guy) and we'd have to translate things like biscuit and cookie etc.
