Wink The Havanese Smell

Just curious.. I know havanese dogs are not sapposed to smell like a DOG.. but wondering what everyones havs smell like?

Do any of your smell like that DOG smell?

Beamer always smells good.. even when he is dirty?? its the weirdest thing.. In the morning when he wakes up he smells even better.. And he is so cute with his bed head hair all over the place.. I need to take a picture of him waking up in the morning.. or a video.. its to cute

Oh Ryan, you've got it bad!!!!!! my dogs do get a little doggy if they have been out playing hard. The feet and the mouths are the only places that really smell--unless of course they have been rolling in rabbit droppings.

Usual dog feet smell and puppy breath. The only time they have a doggy smell is when they roll around in something, or are playing in the mulch. Yuck!

Nico can definitely smell like dog. Especially when he's wet.

Mine have NEVER had that "wet dog smell" that is associated with most wet dogs. They do smell different when they get wet, but not bad. They usually smell pretty good - unless of course like Michele said - they roll around in a "prize" that they find outside!

Yep, they only 'smell' when they roll in "something". Like Laurie said they do smell different when wet but its not bad at all. They do get stinky feet at times. I hate it when you pet someones dog & your hand stink from them! Thats why i love these dogs. No matter how dirty they are(well....) they dont stink!

Sally has no smell at all...unless she has had a bath and then she has a faint smell of shampoo. I have never noticed a doggy smell, even when she is wet.

Smarty always smells good. if Idon't wash her face it may have a little smell from whatever she has eaten, but i have never noticed a bad smell. She has never had gas or bad breath, except when I gave her those Bully Sticks, never again
