This is my dog daughter – four legs and a tail, no wedding, no prom, no problem. She is looking at you and saying, “I chase skunks.”
She needs a bath but I am procrastinating because the skunks are out. She has not yet learned that when she sees a skunk, she should walk away. I keep a box above the laundry room sink with the recipe and ingredients for de-skunking the naughty puppy. I also keep a towel close to the door in the event of an emergency. If it happens again, I can snatch her up in the towel and avoid getting skunk stuff on myself. Here is the recipe that I got off the Internet that has proven itself to be tried and true:
“Mix together: 1 quart of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide (available at any pharmacy) 1/4 cup baking soda. 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap.”
I got this recipe from the good people at newengland.com.
