    We now have our first real snow, and the dogs have had a blast running and playing.....but when we came in, no matter how much I dry them off...I am getting such a doggie smell!!!!!! PEEUUUU. It's too cold to give them a bath, so how do you keep that 'smelly dog' syndrome at bay??? Is there a spray or something I could buy that might freshen them a bit without harming their skin? (if I weren't worried about sensitivity...I'd be dousing them with perfume at this point! LOL) :eek:

    I have a doggie spray that I use on Brady sometimes in situations like those. He sneezes a couple of times but it does make him smell better in a pinch. They have baby powder dog sprays too for sensitive skin. My mom has some for her lab, Maddie, but Maddie is not a big fan of smelling like baby powder.

    You can get it at Petsmart, or even Target has some too. You could give it a try.

    How often do you bathe your dog? Just wondering.

    When it is warm...they both get a bath regularly. It is a MAJOR chore to bathe Ham...he is a BIG boy. Addie isn't terribly fond of a bath...but in the warm months I still wash her every 2 weeks. It is very cold now...the bath is out of the question. They are too big for the house, and obviously outside washing is out of the question. I sponge bath them (especially when wet and muddy) and they get brushed daily. I've only noticed their little doggie odor today...after getting very wet playing in the snow. I hate to admit this of my babes....but they smell like..........dogs. ;) :eek:

    Oh, Debi ~

    Shiva came in stinking like cow - badly - covered from humongous head to prodigious toes in cow-pee mud last winter. HAD to have a bath! I threw her (well, more like shoved, pushed, cajoled and threatened) her into the shower. Of course, I put on an OLD sweatshirt and pants first! She spent the rest of the evening on a pile of old blankets curled up on the sofa.

    I'm going to get one of those shower heads you can take down off the hook and use as a hand-held in case it happens again!

    Renee, cow-peed mud! I can't stop laughing and feeling so sorry for you and Shiva at the same time. Max comes in with mud; now I don't feel as bad. After spending the night under blankets, Shiva might get used to that attention and do it again. Good luck!

    Lets just say...the rest of the night was filled with tomato paste and shampoo :) lol

    Oh No!!!! Poor Messina! Brady started to chase a baby skunk and her mother one night and luckily my hubby got him before the skunk did. But I have seen them around here a few times, so I am afraid it may still yet happen. Brady is always on a leash when he is out but that one time my husband let him walk out to the car with him, and sure enough Brady saw those skunks running around with his eagle eyes.
