A Dog's Nose: October 5, 2015

Then what a variety of smells interwoven in subtlest combination thrilled his nostrils; strong smells of earth, sweet smells of flowers; nameless smells of leaf and bramble; sour smells as they crossed the road; pungent smells as they entered bean-fields.  But suddenly down the wind came tearing a smell sharper, stronger, more lacerating than any--a smell that ripped across his brain stirring a thousand instincts, releasing a million memories--the smell of hare, the smell of fox.   
Flush (12)

On October 5, 1933, Flush was published (the autobiography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Cocker Spaniel)
