I know that I give my puppy a bath regularly, and every dog owner is familiar with the stages of how your pal smells between baths: Adorable and cuddle-worthy baby shampoo smell, clean dog smell, dog-dog smell, ripe dog smell, and the process repeats itself.

I know what you’re thinking, and I’m totally onboard: “Petchup” and “Meowstard” are both ridiculous names… Ridiculously awesome!
