Another ONE?

thanks TATTRAT, evidently you have house full of animals too? One that i do not wish on any one is chasing a skunk. Not only is it scary but getting rid of that smell is a real challenge. Even more so when you get sprayed. Worse than garlic. And always unexpected.

Oh, my...I forgot about skunk. Big big furry old Maggie Dog got a little too friendly with a skunk when she was a young dog. I was busy in the greenhouse, but did smell a faint skunky odor everytime she passed by, and figured it was just a distant encounter.
But when I got her out on the deck that evening to bathe her, I was in for a rude surprise. The minute the water hit her fur, that stench descended on us.

Kim was just getting home from work, and when he rounded the corner of the house, he stopped in his tracks and started walking backwards. By the time I got done with Maggie, I smelled just like her, but a shower and plenty of white vinegar did the trick. Sorta.

Constance, I figured you would have had this experience. Once you had it you don't forget it very quick. Just hope it doesn't happen again too soon. Guy that runs where I do, said he was always running in early morning before it got daylight. That is until he met up with a skunk and sure enough once wasn't good enough had to go through it again! This guy hasn't got life too easy. He has only one arm so that makes me want to hunt the skunk myself and really nail him with something. Like a shotgun. I don't have clue what purpose those things have anyway.

The vet told me as long as the stuff didn't get in the dogs eyes it was okay. Just the odor is really powerful. The dog didn't deserve that.
