    Ollie really doesn't have a dirty odor so is usually snuggle proof . If he does stink it usually means ear cleaning time .

    If you mean doggie smell, the funky smell that emits from them if they've passed their bath due date, no, I don't particularly like the smell. Might be because I'm a groomer, and it shames me. lol

    If you mean that doritos smell they get from their feet, now that's a different story, I LOVE that smell. lol

    I looove how Tucker smells... I'm always telling him he smells good. lol. I think his coat just picks up smells around the house. I can't pinpoint what he smells like, but it's kind of potporri/candle'esque.

    Rylie and Chloe don't really have any smell... their feet smell like fritos though. lol.

    Rory always kind of has an earthy smell... it's kind of comforting, like grass or hay. lol.

    Seriously though, when they're clean the paps don't smell hardly any. However Nard, beau and Mia gain the slobber smell because they bite and lick each other all the time. Mia smells far worse than the other four, I'm not sure why. She gets a weird 'sharp' smell to her... that's all I can come up with to describe her. Of course about half the time she's covered in mud and gunk so that might be it. :rolleyes:

    But none smell as bad as some dogs I'm around and regardless any 'dog' smell is comforting to me.

    Do your dogs get the 'dogs that have just been outside running around smell? I don't know why but mine smell funny when they've been outside.

    If Golden's feet stink it's usually due to stress . Weird !

    Yes! We always say they smell like sweat. It's just a weird almost metallic smell.

    Yes. Especially when he's clean - a few days to a week after a bath and he doesn't smell like soap anymore, just like himself. I love that smell. It's so reassuring. I love how he smells. I like dog smell in general. I've been away from Middie for two weeks now, and the only thing keeping me from racing to the airport and getting a flight home is being able to snuggle Sawyer and Vegas and smell their doggy smell. I love how clean dogs smell.

    Abby smells like a wet hound...which right now she really is! LOL As it is raining here...

    In all honesty, my mom had a whole house full of keeshonden at one time, and one Abby smells worse then a whole household of keesies...AND my mom had carpet, and we have hard wood floors...that should tell you how strong Abby smells.

    The BF gets on me when I complain and says, "She's a dog, she's going to smell like a dog!" LOL I'm like...but the dogs I was around NEVER smelled like that. Spitzes usually don't have a doggy smell.

    I mean...I get that, but I would be much happier if he bathed her more then once every three or four months. I probably would be inclined to cuddle with her if afterwords my hands and clothes didn't smell like outside dog. Which is strange, because Abby only goes outside to use the bathroom!

    I would bathe her if she trusted me, but she doesn't really and I don't want to freak her out.

    I guess I should clarify. Everything living has an odor, but my dogs do not have an odor, let's say, like a Bassett Hound. That was what I meant. You don't walk into my house and immediately know BY SMELL that I have dogs ...

    Love it. Bandit hasn't had a bath in at least a year and a half. His coat is beautiful and he smells wonderful.
