    Both doxies were barking at the grainery yesterday afternoon. I came out of the coop to see what was going on and DH yelled Skunk! He called Shelby back (the one doxie who listens) I ran to grab Pooh, thinking a 13yr didnt need to wrestle a skunk.

    As I reached down to grab her, I saw the skunk. Freddie, the lab was behind me. The three of us were nailed!

    Bathed Freddie, showered with Pooh. Fricken skunk got away.

    but not for long!

    Sorry about the stink. I know all too well what it is like. The smell is worse fresh than it is from a dead one in the road. Good luck. [​IMG]

    OH NO! YUCKY! You poor thing! I always use peroxide / baking soda / and a little dish soap for the dogs...it works really well [​IMG] good luck! And do you work outside the home? I would tell your coworkers to bring masks [​IMG] If you google "skunk spray recipe" you will be able to find the amounts to use for this recipe.
