About 10 years ago, I bought my husband a chocolate lab. I remember going to the people's house and walking in and being hit in the face with smell of dog.... the house was very clean, the people were clean but the house smelled like a dog. Not necessarily a bad smell, but overwhelming all the same....you know what I mean?
Ever since then, I've been paranoid that my house will smell like a dog. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, but would be defensive to my non-dog family memebers. And though I know my house is clean, they would say it must not be because of the smell. Not that I really care... I have a relative that won't eat at my house because I have house dogs.
So, I ask my sister who does not have house dogs, every time she comes to visit if my house smells like a dog, to make sure it's under control... she always say "You can tell you have dogs but it doesn't stink."
I never smell anything... my house smells...well, like my house and whatever carpet stuff I used that day....
My question is, how often do our homes smell of our dogs but we have no clue because we're just used to the odor? Not that it's a bad odor.. but a dog smell... And how aware are you of this... and what, if anything, do you do about it?
