Skunks and boog the chocolate lab

Friday morning mister boog once again made contact with skunk. And my wife children had to take the day off because of the odor. After four baths and skunk deodorizer boog smelled better.

This morning I smelled skunks and hooked King knuckle head up to a swivel and leash. As I sat on back porch boog was pulling at leash hackles up barking. Come on man I smell em let me at em Iíll kick skunk ass and take names. Clearly he is a reactionary dog who thinks nothing thru I see I do.

The boog is nine after getting sprayed multiple times over the years. You would think he would learn, I guess learning is for suckers.

4. You're assuming he doesn't like the smell...

perhaps he sees it as a badge of honor.

7. Isn't that part of Space Force training?

I see. I do. End of story. No need to think about it for even a second. Response time is everything in space where there might be alien skunks hiding on the dark side of the moon!

8. they don't even learn from porcupines, skunks are nothing

tsp of liquid dish detergent, 1/4 cup baking soda, quart of peroxide, quart of warm water. sponge all over dog let sit a couple minutes and rinse. it actually works.

9. That mixture works great, along with putting the dog in the basement for a week.

At least the skunk encounter didn't require stitches, as opposed to other nastier wildlife encounters.

An English Sheepdog / Standard Poodle hybrid can be a very caring troublemaker.

11. I can't imagine what you do with a trapped (and presumably upset) skunk

But I imagine you do it VERRRY CAREFULLY!

13. Nature skunk odor remover works like a charm

You just wet all his fur thoroughly and let it dry naturally. The odor will vanish like a miracle! If you still smell some skunk odor itís because you missed a spot.

It works on anything the dog touches like your walls as boog careens off them in his haste to get the skunk or get away from the skunk.

Seriously, itís great stuff.
