Our sense of smell can truly be a powerful thing. Not only does it let us know when something delicious is cooking nearby—or that something is rotten and should be avoided—but our olfactory system as a whole is often intrinsically linked to our memories.
Think about it: many of us can find ourselves feeling nostalgic whenever we catch a whiff of certain aromas. The smell of the ocean, for example, might remind you of a childhood beach trip, while freshly-baked cookies could bring back memories of your grandmother. As you might imagine, this sensibility only intensifies for animals with stronger noses!
That was certainly the case for one dog, who was curious about a certain familiar scent in a pile of blankets. He knew something special was hiding in there, and you just have to watch the moment his suspicions come true!
It can feel so good to reunite with something—or someone—that you haven’t seen in a long time. What a pleasant surprise this must have been for that wonderful pooch!
