Nope, she doesn't stink, never has, no matter what she's been fed.

I bathe her when I pet her and my hand comes back black, so it's definitely not because I bathe her a lot.

Nope they don't smell unless they've rolled in something nasty or went swimming. I love to bury my face in their fur. Lily smells like all the cats I've ever had. I can only describe it as her fur smelling like snow, which sounds really weird I know. Scout smells warmer.

Scout's fur grabs dirt and odor like no ones business, so she gets washed pretty often. Every month or so which is a lot to me, especially since bathing 75lbs or so of passive resistance is oh so fun! Lily maybe twice a year? Mostly to aid in getting out undercoat then rather than being dirty. She holds the husky tail out of the water in desperate hopes of saving it from being washed, its funny.

I've gotten lots of compliments on how clean they are and how they don't smell. Except my current roommates. My current roomates are always talking about how my dogs stink. I'm sorry they do not stink! Just the way they say it has struck me as very offensive. I don't gripe about the foot deep layer of clothes and junk in their room, nor the fact that their tiny cat box is only cleaned once a week... Ah having roommates is FUN.

Watson as pretty much all basenjis does not have a doggy smell to him.

Menchi as a pei gets bathed at least once a month to keep her skin healthy so she never gets the chance to work up a stink if she has one

Ditto! Riley smells really good - I regularly grab him and sniff his head when I'm giving him some love. He smells kind of like straw and I love it. Switching to raw diet definitely enhanced/improved his already nice smell.

I'll admit, I actually kind of like Mia's slightly doggy smell. lol

Summer can go so much longer without a bath than Mia. I have no idea what the difference is between the two. Same food and care. Same breed.

Tulip only smells when wet. Godric always has a slight stinch to him but not bad. We are dealing with some health issues so maybe that is some of it.

Come to our practice. They are all there. I think its Hills. Everyone comments on how all 3 of mine still smell like puppies. Yeah, good food does that.

Run free my special angel. I love you and will miss you forever more. You touched everyone with your light.

Dogs will always have a doggie smell no matter how often they are bathed and groomed. Outside dogs are even more stinky because they have the inclination to roll on things that are abhorrent to us humans. But despite the stink...we still love these small and not so small hairy pets.
Everything I know, I learned from dogs.

No smell here, but they do get bathed fairly often. Trying for once a week for the borders and every other for Storee.

Right now doing the skin so soft mixed with vinegar and liking it....

Ours don't usually. People have come over and said, "I thought you had indoor dogs?"

Cleanliness achieved.

Edit to clarify: they said this without seeing the dogs, so I know our house doesn't have a doggie smell.
