Harbinger of Spring

February has been cold and snowy since groundhog day but now we are going into a warmer period which has caused it to rain, fog and melt a whole lot of snow.

And apparently this warm weather has awoken a skunk from its' winter slumber and Danny found the thing and came in this morning with a fine skunk perfume. he (and Nate and Arlo who also stank) were quickly ushered back out the door to t eh great outdoors where they will stay until we run into town and get a couple of big bottles of hydrogen peroxide to put in their bath water.

Peroxide neutralizes the sulphur based chemical that we know as skunk smell on contact. Put a cup of peroxide in a gallon of water with a 1/4 cup of baking soda and douche the dog everywhere (anyplace you miss will stink). Than rinse the dog and you are done-No more skunk smell

Apparently tomato juice also does the trick. Robert used to wash his great mutt in tomato juice when ever she went after skunks.
