Everyone knows that dogs have one of the best senses of smell
They can track down a criminal through the hardest conditions
Smelling out bombs and detecting a fiend
Dogs are the best at detecting a lead.
So this expression is quite easy to see
As a way to express how stealthy a person can be.
If someone is sly and very conniving
They can best prove it by doing more than just lying
They can out fox a dog’s most well honed sense.
It is with great focus a dog will chase a scent
Knowing exactly where a person went
But not if that person finds some other means
Of hiding their smell or repaving the smell
In most cases it won’t work (living honestly works well).
For those who are more criminally minded
They had best find reliable ways to avoid being found,
Because there is no nose as evolved as the nose of a hound.
