What's the origin of the phrase 'The mutt's nuts'?

This is a variant of 'the dog's bollocks' and it originated in the UK in the 1990s. It is a rather nice alternative as it has the dual advantages over the original form of the rhyme and the fact that nuts is both slang for bollocks and also means both crazy and rubbish.
