Storyline

While Professor McGuffy is performing a demonstration on how certain animals, such as basset hounds, have developed a keen sense of smell to overcome other less developed senses, his science class learns that Maynard's sense of smell is far more powerful, especially when it comes to searching out food. But Maynard's keen sense of smell applies to everything. Dobie believes Maynard can parlay that ability to sniff out anything into a lucrative detective business - finding missing items for clients - with Dobie as his business manager. It does end up becoming a booming and indeed lucrative business. But what Dobie didn't count on was fellow student, the beautiful but conniving and money hungry Elspeth Hummaker, entering the scene. Elspeth, who would normally be way out of Maynard's league, wants to take over the business, moving it into an even more lucrative but less ethical direction, and push Dobie out. Will Maynard stay with his good buddy, or go with a girl he wouldn't otherwise be... Written by Huggo
