Indoor King Charles Spaniel smells like dead animal!

I have an eight month old, female, cavalier king charles spaniel who just experienced her first "doggy period". It ended about a week and a half ago, and since then I've noticed that she now has a terrible stench! I've bathed her numerous times, however the smell of dead animal keeps coming back. Is there something wrong with her or is this normal?

The stench is probably coming from her anal glands.  Take her to the vet and have her anal glands expressed.  If the smell is not from her anal glands she may have vaginitis, which of course can also be checked by your vet.
