Pregnancy nose: dog

My dog is a lovely elegant greyhound who is really very unsmelly by dog standards, but the last couple of days he is ALL I CAN SMELL. Dog. Dog dog dog. Dog.

Cue much dry-heaving.

(I still haven't actually been sick yet, and veer between being relieved and being anxious that this means my hormones aren't high enough.)

Other things that set me off: any sort of curry. I last made a curry in this house about two weeks ago and I still smell it in the kitchen.

I'm a fellow greyhound owner, am 19 weeks pregnant with first child. Whilst his usual smell isn't setting me off (and I still love the smell of his paws- like hovis biscuits?!) I also loathe the smell of curries, ketchup makes me vomit and I don't like the smell of air fresheners either.

However... my disliking for all of these combined pales in comparison to greyhound farts, which are now literally the most lethal things in the world. (And tragically being pregnant hasn't reduced the frequency of our boy's butt-bads. They're absolutely revolting)! 😂

I also have a dog, but I've always loved her smell! It might sound weird but she smells kind of like cheese doritos grin

My dog's paws also smell of biscuits smile

It's not his fault. It's my stupid pregnancy nose spoiling everything for me.

I went nose blind to cogarette smoke. My colleague is a smoker and I couldn't smell it on her (previously she reeled of benson and hedges)

When I was pregnant with my daughter my daily routine was to get up, go downstairs, smell dog, run back upstairs to throw up! I never truly got over it. I am still super sensitive to the smell of dog.
Also, I cooked a lamb dinner a while back, I could smell it for weeks and it made me gag all the time!
It's s joyful time

I'm feeling the same OP.
Love my dog, but BY GOD the smell is driving me nuts! Her bedding is getting washed every other day, I've gone through countless bottles of febreeze and it still doesn't really make much of a difference!

Hubby can't smell anything out of the ordinary so I know it's just me but I'm at my wits end about what to do!

She only had a bath last week and she's generally a very clean and not very smelly dog but I've bought some doggy wipes which should be arriving today to give her a rub down with (we have a doggy dry shampoo but she's scared of spray bottles 🙄🙄🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️)
