he is a huge hairy bear. he keeps coming for a cuddle looking at me with big brown eyes ....

hes gonna have to go to the poodle parlour for a bath. he had one in march and came back smelling all lemony fresh.

its that or fabreeze him and the rug. grin

Wash him and his bedding. I have 5 dog beds and sometimes I come in and am aware the place stinks. Other times I just don't give a shit.

Dry dog shampoo will change your life. Seriously.

If you run away from him he will just chase you grin

Ohhhh what kind of dog is he? I'll take him while you're preggers if you want....

AprilSkies44 Tue 31-May-16 22:48:29

there is such a thing as dry dog shampoo??? where do i buy???

seriously i have to keep going to bed ....(hes not allowed upstairs)

hes a Very Big Dog with Very Long Hair and i live in a Very Small Cottage (for now - hopefully not for much longer)

him and his smell have taken over downstairs.....
i hoover daily but even that smells of dog.
i change the sofa covers every few days

i feel mean but im still suffering with sickness and i really do have to run away....poor boy.

Edwardian ladies just sprayed perfume on their hankies and held it against their nose.

Do that.
Although perfume is quite strong. Use Febreeze.

Dog deodorant and nice smelling vacuum bag drop in thingies!

Queenbean Tue 31-May-16 22:55:06

You could shave him? Make him look like a nice poodle

AprilSkies44 Tue 31-May-16 22:56:17

well i had no idea there was such a thing as doggie deodorant or dry shampoo! i need to explore the pet aisle....

and do the shake and vac. or something. soon.

AprilSkies44 Tue 31-May-16 22:58:18

i dont think he would forgive me if i poodled him.....hes quite butch. i often walk him in the early hours and i always feel quite safe cos he looks the part....and has a big boy bark.

(and smell. )

Purpledog has something like this; but cheaper and from Pets at Home. He lets me spray and brush him if I bribe with some cheese.

We have a retriever who can get a bit whiffy. We use a spray made by animology and some puppy colone which smells like baby powder. Don't use it often but when it is wet out and she is very wet dog it helps 😊

MadHattersWineParty Tue 31-May-16 23:00:29

You can get Doggy perfume too, I buy it for a poodle who loves fox poo and she smells like cupcakes now grin

claw12 Tue 31-May-16 23:04:40

Drop in vac fresheners, stop your vac from smelling of dog hair!

AprilSkies44 Tue 31-May-16 23:06:32

you may have just made a sad dog and a woman with a sensitive nose very happy....

i will explore! thanks! he keeps moving a little nearer to me, and when ever he lays down he humphs....

i think hes offended.

What is it that smells? You need to rule out ear infection, dental disease and anal glands first. If it is just hairy-dog-rolled-in-something-disgusting, give him a bath. Between baths, Maxi sheen deodorising spray is v good and smells lovely.

claw12 Tue 31-May-16 23:10:46

Aww bless, I have a big smelly elderly lab, he stinks too and loves a cuddle!

One of these for you too!!! grin

AprilSkies44 Tue 31-May-16 23:13:04

i couldnt bath him myself - he has to go to the poodle parlour. he wont sit in the bath. and he weighs almost as much as me and i cant hold him anywhere he doesnt want to stay!

its not infection - its just his hair. that doggy smell. i think im just really sensitive to smells at the moment anyway with being pg but not glands or anything and he hasnt even rolled in anything - its just that "doggy" smell....

AprilSkies44 Tue 31-May-16 23:14:53

bookmarking like crazy....thank you!

not sure i need the mask but at a push!

ExitPursuedByBear Tue 31-May-16 23:17:53

My dog stinks.


claw12 Tue 31-May-16 23:18:39

Amazon have some of the lemony stuff dog parlours use.

Hope you guys are cuddling again soon!

claw12 Tue 31-May-16 23:19:51

Awww exit

I think we need a pic of Aprilskies stinky dog too

grumpysquash3 Tue 31-May-16 23:35:47

Dogs do generally stink though, it's all part and parcel.
Sorry your nose is so sensitive.
(Mine was like that too.....I couldn't even stand the smell of hair conditioner - for humans not dogs).
You might find the contrast of dog with baby smell quite overwhelming too!

Awww, post a photo of your smelly teddy bear dog.

One of my cats pongs but I don't mind.
