New (old) house with the worst possible kitchen floor.

Help us figure out how to cover up or replace this god awful kitchen floor. We just purchased a farmhouse that was renovated in the mid 50s. The mudroom and kitchen have 9" asphalt tiles that are all coming up (so not level), and on top of that, the prior owner used these rooms as a kennel for his incontinent daschund.

Our first thought was a floating floor over this mess, but I'm worried that the smell is going to come through. We've got one coat of Nature's Miracle down now that has seemed to help, but I don't want to find out that it didn't really do the trick after the floor is down. DH really does not want to take up the floor if he can help it.
I'm open to any and all suggestions no matter how funky. We are pretty handy and crafty, and have a great contractor for any tile work. I'm just getting a little overwhelmed with all of the options.
Bonus: We have a five year old, a dog and baby on the way, and are generally outdoorsy gardeners. This WILL get dirty.
