Lula still smells like a puppy. In the little dip in her forehead, between her eyes.
It make me very happy.
You guys got a special sniffin' spot on your labbies?
the ears!!! I love all labs ears.
No special spot, but sometimes I just bury my face in their fur, and take a deep breath.... and hope they haven't been rolling in anything gross.
yup, right on top of her forehead too. I love Lucy's smell.
Oh I know what you mean! Even old Paddy smells like a plush toy at times.
Seamus and Flynn
I like their necks..... I bury my face in their necks with hugs and sniffs !! They sniff my hair when I sniff their fur !!
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
I LOVE Baloo's smell, but nothing beats his sleepy frito feets....
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
Henery's neck, behind his ears...
His chest, after he's been all curled up in a ball, warm with sleep.
I have been thinking about this alot. I love the smell of Labs, not just Lucy. The frito smell. I bet some people would find it unpleasant and unappealing.
Cricket, my Cairn has a distinct odor since she was a puppy. It isn't like the Lab frito smell. It is like an earthy, wet straw smell. I don't find it appealing and I don't bury my face in her neck or her head or coat and enjoy her smell. (I do love her to death though)
I wonder those who multiple breeds in the house notice the difference in smells between dogs.
Also, I wonder if we blindfolded ourselves and lined up our labbies, whether we could identify our pups just by smell alone?
Oh yeah, that too. Love the frito feet.Originally Posted by Baloo317My Moms black lab Molly (at the bridge now) had a very distinct, wonderful smell. I can almost smell it from memory. Molly always got lots of hugs and kisses from me (and everyone else). She was allowed on the furniture and the beds.Originally Posted by mollyrock
Toby, the Basset Hound that she had at the same time didn't get to enjoy the same privileges as Molly. Because of his stench most of the family wouldn't pet him (Mom and I would) and he was never allowed on the furniture. :-X
Like I said, I can remember Molly's smell clearly and it was different from Lula's smell. I think that we would all pass the blindfold test.
