One thing my kids want more than anything is a dog. Unfortunately, my husband and I are allergic to both cats and dogs. We have a compromise where they can go spend a few nights at Grandma and Grandpa’s house with Sookie the basset hound.
She’s a spunky little thing who loves my kids. She knows when Grandpa gives her a bath that the kids are coming for a visit, and she just can’t contain herself until they arrive.
Sookie loves getting her teeth brushed. Learning the importance of pet dental care is great for kids, and now there’s a new book to learn all about it. Banfield Pet Hospital® has its second children’s book out called “My Very, Very Smelly Breath.”
It’s a scratch-and-sniff story written to educate children on the importance of being a responsible pet owner especially for their pet’s dental health.
It’s a sequel to their 2014 book, “My Very, Very Busy Day.” It follows Queen Esther as she learns she has very smelly breath. Her friends, Captain Noodles and Kitty, help her find her way to a healthy mouth.
It’s perfect for families to learn new ways for pet dental habits like dental treats for their pets, regular visits to the vet as well as brushing their pet’s teeth, which should always be done by an adult.
Molly loves giving Sookie a dental dog chew after she has her dinner. Not only do kids learn how important it is for their pets, but it helps them also realize how important dental care is for everyone.
Molly is just learning to read, so she couldn’t wait to read the book to Sookie. We did not like the scratch and sniff of poor Queen Esther’s breath. She really did have some stinky breath. Later in the book her breath smelled much better.
Candace Cameron Bure plays a veterinarian in the new Netflix series Fuller House. She’s now partnering with Banfield Pet Hospital to spread awareness of the importance of pet dental health!
My Very, Very Smelly Breath! is available at your local Banfield hospital for the suggested donation of $10 per book. One hundred percent of the donations will go to the Banfield Foundation™.

What kind of pet do you have?
What a lovely book and a shame that you and hubby are both allergic to pets. My nephew loves pets and I am sure my SIL would love this book for him
how fun! My kids would love a a scratch and sniff book and Dogs are a huge hit around our house too.
I need to get this book for the grands! Two years ago they asked for a dog for Christmas but asked that we keep it at our house. Smart grandkids. They come over often and visit with Max.
I would love a copy of this book! It is so important to remember the dental hygiene of our pets. It really does affect their health. We try to make it a habit to brush our dog’s teeth.
I think kids should learn about responsible pet ownership. We have a dog and two cats.
My kids loved scratch and sniff books. This is the cutest book ever and the lesson is great. It looks like your dog enjoyed the story too 🙂
Kids naturally loves pets but they are not yet too responsible. The book would really be a great way to teach them to care for their pets and be responsible pet owners.
This looks like such a cute book! We don’t have any pets right now, but my daughters have been asking for a dog! We’re hoping to get one soon!
What a cute books!! Keeping kids involved in pet care is so important and teaches the responsiblity as well!
books are so great for teaching them about these “simple” things in life. when i was pregnant we read about becoming a big sister. i really want a dog but i think we’ll wait until my youngest can comprehend more.
Awww I absolutely love the photos. So adorable! It is important to get the kids to help out caring for family pet and the book sounds amazing!
Teaching kids about pet care are also important, so glad that I found this post. I love those lovely pics.
I love the compromise you have made over the fact that you can’t have cats and dogs. It’s great that your daughter still gets to experience the pleasure of having a pet. We have two cats and my daughter wants a dog (no way in Hell!). Luckily my sister has a dog so she can see him when we go there.
This looks like a cute book and I would love to get copy of this book!! Lovely pics too!!
I love this book and the idea. When parents buy a pet because their kid wanted and wited for it so so much, kids then just play with the pet and parents care. And it’s a kind of responsibility kids must learn to take, isn’t it? Glad we have such books-assistnts! )))
