Last night I suddenly smelled skunk in the air and I frantically called the dogs in – Keeper was last and sure enough he had been in the vicinity of a skunk. He did not get sprayed in the face thankfully but his fur smelled so I quickly (time is of the essence!) mixed up hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, dish soap and water and gave him a thorough sponge bath. By doing it very fast the smell doesn’t get a chance to penetrate and IT WORKED!!! No skunk smell this morning at all. Another crisis diverted – like Becky always says there’s never a dull moment here.
Thank you for all the name suggestions – I will wait to see which one fits her. I am feeling bad for her – I think she’s lonely! So I called Patriots For Pets, my local rescue to get her a pal. I can’t believe I’m doing this after I said I would not get any more young animals because I’m too old!
It so so dry here! I didn’t even mow yesterday because there are brown patches in the grass. Today is cloudy but very humid. I’m trying to clean in my house – everything outside takes precedence over inside so my house really needs my attention. Does anybody in my area know someone who cleans?
Take a look at this old quilt – I think I bought it in Missouri years ago and it’s very worn but I just laughed when I saw these crooked borders. What would that fair judge say?
