This month’s winner is WILLIAM SOLOF of Golden, Colorado:

Visiting Holland a few years ago, my wife and I obtained rooms at a farm outside Amsterdam. Our host had a ginormous Bouvier des Flandres named Berri.

At dinner that first evening, the dog kept pushing and sniffing us, and it became, to say the least, quite annoying. We finally asked our host about the dog’s behavior.

The answer was “When you return late this evening, you really want Berri to remember your scent.”

Oh! Sniff away, Berri dog!
