No, I'm not talking about stench, here, guys. Wink

Since I've owned two poodles in the past, I've noticed that they have their very own sort of scent. They don't smell like other dogs, you know, the typical "doggy" smell. Instead I've noticed that they have a unique, almost "baby powder-ish" smell. I know Patty, my first poodle, had that smell and Vivi has a very similar one. I'm not crazy because I have a friend who had a poodle and she said she noticed it as well. (Of course she also noticed the "dirty poodle" smell and compared that to "rotten nachos", LOL!)

Anybody else here notice it? ^_^

(Sorry I haven't been on in awhile, RL swallowed me up. Rolling Eyes )

I know lol. Grassy earthy smells aren't bad to me, just annoying when the dogs are sitting on my pillow. Rolling Eyes

What I meant is, my dogs never get a neutral smell that's all there own.They smell like shampoo, it wears off and I bath them again. If there is a in between smell, it's normally a grassy one.

My bad. ^_^;; I misunderstood you.

It may just be me that's noticed it because when I ask my Mom about it, she's never noticed it.

I don't bathe Vivi that often because I heard a long time ago that bathing more than once every 6 weeks (unless they get very very dirty) strips their skin of essential oils or something like that. She also doesn't go out except to go to the bathroom (we don't have a fence, so I'm not letting her out by herself. Yike! D: ) so that's probably why I noticed it a little bit more.

BTW, your babies are beautiful. I've been meaning to ask--is Christmas a new addition? Very Happy

I've never found a problem with bathing weekly, and I've never taken the care to use special shampoo's ether. We do this with many of our dogs, non of them have ever had bad skin or fur from it.

Thank you. Very Happy Yes, Christmas is my newest pup. I've had her for around three months now. She's doing well, her main issue is house training, after three years outside she is not getting it lol. Here is the thread I made for her, it has all her info if you are interested. http://www.thetoypoodle.com/viewtopic.php?t=5456

If I don't use my super duper expensive shampoo I use baby powder shampoo and matching colonge, so mine DO smell like baby powder!!

I'm pretty sure that you can over- bathe some breeds but poos aren't one of them unless there is a problem to begin with. That;s what I learned in school and seems true as I bathe oodles of poodles on a regular basis Smile

yes-don't you love poodle smell! they don't s-t-i-n-k like an outdoor kennel dog can ---don't have that greasy oily coat like a lab or a hound or doberman etc. Part of the joy of having poodles. My boy has stinky feet like fritos (because he ocd licks them probably) but no body odor, even after months of no bath (unless he rolls in critter).
