Looks Can Be Deceiving

Badger the Wonder Dog looks so darn cute at times. He is so very friendly to people and loves to be petted. Today however I'm keeping my distance. No pets on the head or anywhere else for that matter. He smells really bad! Last night at two-thirty a.m. he badly wanted to go out. I'm not a witness to what happened as I slept through it all and was greeted by the smell of the incident when I came downstairs this morning. According to Lenore she went to go let him out. He bolted out the door and went head first into the back end of a skunk going under our deck. It doesn't take much imagination to figure out what happened next. He was whimpering and rolling around on the leaves trying to get that nasty, wicked stuff off his face. This afternoon I'm going to put on some old clothes and give him a bath in water, baking soda,hydrogen peroxide and dish soap. He won't be sleeping indoors for a few days.

  1. Poor baby! This happened to my neighbors, but their dog ran inside and rolled on rugs and furniture in several rooms. The smell remained in the house until they replaced the carpeting and reupholstered their furniture.
