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.

Most people would probably say my dog doesn't have an odor, because it's not strong at all. But I can also smell when a nurse gets an IV catheter into a vein from across the room, sooooo

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 ...

That's a great way to describe that! I wonder why they smell after going outside...

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