Benito Canelo: Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate

Scent: Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate – cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, spicy chile

Scent Intensity: Medium

The story behind the scent: He was tiny. He was fierce. He ‘never took nothin’ from nobody’ and he was my first boy dog, never quite topping four pounds and every ounce of his sleek brown Chihuahua body full of spirit. When Benito arrived, two years old, unwanted and starving, on an ‘underground railroad’ rescue ride from Los Angeles, you could see every bone in his body and he was so afraid he fell asleep standing up. That was the last time he was ever afraid of anything and for the next thirteen years I was lucky enough to be his ‘Dog Ma’ and he bossed around me, his older sister Paloma, and anyone else he came into contact with. He destroyed my floors, broke my eardrums, and won my heart and that of everyone who knew him. He was a celebrity at the vet’s office and on the sidewalks. Cruising around in his trademark bright red sweater, he kept up with those twice or ten times his size and up until his very last day he was showing us all who was boss. Born on July 24th, he was a true Leo personality – always full of pride and the center of attention! He passed just after his fifteenth birthday on 22 August 2017 and Benito Canelo is my testament to my spicy little dog with the heart of a lion. Like the Paloma candle, $2.20 of every Benito Canelo candle will be donated to Rocket Dog Rescue (www.rocketdogrescue.org) in the San Francisco Bay Area to help save lives and build families!
