    Give your pup a treat every time I say "snoot" in this post.

    If you don't love dogs...not only do I not understand you, I don't trust you, either.

    Anyway, as everyone is already well aware, the best part of a pup is their sweet snoot.

    However, not every precious snoot was eager to participate in this internet phenomenon:

    Some even outright REFUSED:
