Oh, yeah. Ever smell an old male Bloodhound?
But there are other factors, like diet and
allergies. My old Rottie/Elkhound bitch tends
to have oily skin and a heavy undercoat. One
week on AvoDerm had her positively reeking with
oil in her coat.

I think stress factors into this quite a bit. If the teeth are clean
and the dog is bathed and it still stinks, I'd look for other health
reasons. But after all that, I'd suspect stress. I had a dog from
the pound who stunk to high heaven when I first brought her home.
After a month or so, the smell went away.

Also my puppy stunk at first, but now doesn't. IN his case, it was
diet related, I think.

Lola doesn't smell like dog. she smells clean even when she rolls around in
the yard. i've never noticed any other pit bulls smelling bad either.

Manu, on the other hand, has this doggy odor about him. i just bathed both
of them last saturday, and by today, Lola smells the same as when i just
bathed her, and Manu smells, well, he smells like a dog. is this the Lab in
him? his hair is longer and much thicker than your average pit bull, maybe
the long hair traps smell more?

just curious to hear about other people's experiences.

owned flower dogs. I've heard that usually the smell is most intense on

the
head, between the ears. I've also heard that it is in some way

hereditary,
dogs with that perfume smell more often get puppies that smell than


THAT'S IT! It is located on her head, between her ears. For a while, I

was
sure it came from sleeping on clean sheets. When she is stressed, the

scent is
stronger. I wish I could quantify it...her second litter appears to not

have
the scent.

Do you remember where you read about this?


Unfortunately the article i read was in finnish, so i guess it wouldn't be
of much use to you =(

Untrue, I have two good friends that speak Finnish. They help me

understand a
Finnish ESS list

Mindy, still trying to pronounce Ihana


Oh, Finnish is a really difficult language to learn, so don't worry if it
takes you some time to understand or speak it. It took me years, and i've
lived in Finland all my life =)

The article about the "flower dogs" was in a magazine called "Koiramme" (our
Dogs) that the finnish kennelclub sends to it's members. To my recollection
it was in a magazine from year 2002, or 2001.
I have saved some of the magazines, so i will go through them and see if i
can find the right one for you =)
I tried searching the web, but i found nothing =(
