Water smells like wet dog?

My wife has been telling me the water smells like a wet dog, I didn’t smell it. Well today I was doing my weekly full spectrum test and smelt my cup of water and smelt the “wet dog”. Water is crystal clear, no CC. Chemicals are in line. Any ideas? (You can see my levels in my profile) Oh and we don’t have dogs.

Clean the filter? Maybe soak the cartridge in TSP? Anything in the skimmer or cleaner that shouldn't be there?
How does your fill water smell? Does it have that funky lake smell that we get in N. TX in the summer?
