“My bite is worse than my bark, Hoomin!,” Pepper yipped.

Also, part deux: I’m reading Being A Dog: Following the Dog’s Nose Into A World of Smell by Alexandra Horowitz. When you give ol’ Fido a boop on the snoot, you are touching one of the most magnificent sniffers in the world. Horowitz is a researcher at Barnard, and while this could be dry science, it is actually compelling reading. The closest analogy I can say is that dogs sense of smell is greater than our sense of vision by an order of magnitude. Horowitz is not a funny science writer like Mary Roach but this is a worthy read.
