I don't know what's in this stuff but it smells like Vick's vapo-rub. It likely is Vick's vapo-rub in a fancy new container. Like most of this crap, you could likely write SNAKE OIL on the side and be just as accurate. It likely is snake oil, but without the opium and crushed coca leaves mixed in to make it work. What the hell though? It doesn't hurt.
I've noticed something odd this week though. I use this stuff twice a day...once in the morning and once at night. I slather it on. Then the dogs come. It used to be haphazard, but now they are lining up in order of dominance. The old one with mouth cancer goes first, then the one I stole from a junkie, then the psychotic one that was retrieved from the corner of Portage and Donald, then the diabetic blind dog.
The last one isn't the least dominant. She's the enforcer and protector of the oldest one, so her duties require her to be last. She's adamant about it too...step out of line and she makes hyena noises and snaps ineffectually at the air because she can't see who to bite.
They all show up, in their little pack order, and snort my knees. It's like some bizarre ritual. They all do that in the same order too.... left knee, right knee, right ankle.
i think they've become addicted to Deep Cold and made it into their doggie religion.
