1st. Why did you change the Pump? Was it leaking or just making noise? If it was leaking, maybe that was not your leak. Maybe you have a hose with a pin hole spraying fluid at the pump. Did you use any gasket sealant on the new pump gasket? Are you sure the you installed the correct bolts in the correct holes. Some are longer than others in most applications. Use a good strong light and round extension mirror to inspect the area (WITH THE MOTOR STOPPED) where the leak is suspected.also check the timing chain cover gasget fluid also goes in that area and looks like the pump is leaking.

Smell of antifreeze but radiator is full?

The smell of antifreeze is very strong and distinct, it does not take much of a leak to smell it. The radiator could still be full and have a small leak. I would check for antifreeze dripping onto the exhaust or on the engine block because when it is hot the smell is much more noticeable from the fumes.

What happens if a dog drinks antifreeze?

Depends a bit on the amount and the size of the dog. In larger amounts it causes the liver and kidneys to fail, and can lead to a painful and agonizing death. If you suspect your dog has had antifreeze, take him to your vet immediately. There are some newer brands that do not have the same ingredients as traditional anti freeze and do not kill dogs. You should still take your dog do your veterinarian to make sure.
