Do dogs sweat?

I was always under the impression that dogs cooled themselves by panting, but I've noticed that when Maia's been out for a long walk, she stinks! I can only guess that she's been sweating? Or is it something else?

Dogs don't sweat, but they still produce oils to protect their skin and coat... and this is probably what you are smelling when you come in from a hot summer day's walk in the sun.

It's almost the same smell of a 10 year old boy coming in from play... <<SNIFF>>
