Love Stinks! Or At Least the Dog Does!

October 27th, 2009 at 09:35 am

OMG! It's 5:16AM here, and you will not believe why I am up (well, maybe you would). I have tonight off, so I am lying in bed, trying to sleep, and the dog is downstairs pacing back and forth thru the house. I thought she had to go out, although she usually whines just to get her point across. So, being the nice person that I am, and not wanting to mop up a puddle, I got up and let her out the door. It's raining here, so I wasn't surprised when she was back pretty quick, until I opened the door.... SKUNK! She had gotten it good! (0r BAD, definitely BAD!) Now what do I do? It's 3AM! So, I shut her in the back entry, which she DID NOY like (whining and yipping), and hit the computer, thank God for Google. And thanks for the shure-fire formula that I found on at least 6 different sites, that only used stuff most of us have in the cupboard! Peroxide, baking soda and dish soap! Then there was a variety of other after-products, I went with antiseptic mouthwash, which luckily I had just bought a big, new bottle of. And thank you to DD#1, who just moved out, but left three big bottles of anti-stinky dog stuff, because she doesn't have the dog anymore! So we doped, and soaked, and sudsed, and rinsed, and repeated a couple of those, and rinsed with the mouthwash, not minty fresh, she'll just have to suffer, and rinsed, and toweled, and so far, so good! Now, I just have to freshen up the back entry, which has about 20 coats hanging there, of course. Also luckily, new bottle of Febreeze in the cupboard! So, now I am boiling some vinegar in the kitchen, maybe we will just smell like a pickle factory, instead of a skunky pickle factory. All this, and I haven't even had a cup of coffee yet! And I don't even drink coffee, thats how bad it is!

    Oh poor you! I ran into a skunk out by the dumpster (hole in the bottom, thank you stupid condo management company for addressing that) while I was walking my dog a couple weeks ago. I yelled for DH to get him to open the gate to the dumpster area, but all I could spit out was "Open this NOW!" Wasn't helpful. He came around the other way with the beagle and the skunk sprayed. Didn't get either dog, but most likely got hubby's jacket. It wasn't a direct hit, but the smell was everywhere. Yuck!! I couldn't go back out the way I came because I was dragging a lab who wanted to eat the skunk. Of course the dumpster was replaced two days later.
