Last night we let the dog out to do her business and she likes to sit out on the back deck. She had been out for 15 or 20 minutes when we smelled skunk in the house. When I opened the door and called her she didn't come and I didn't hear her tags rattle. I went down the steps and saw her huddled up against the steps, her chain thing had been wrapped around a post and she was basically stuck. She had been sprayed on her left side by the skunk. We called the Emergency Vet Hospital and they said to bathe her in a solution of Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda and Hand Soap. Man, if I didn't look (and smell) like a wacko buying out all the Hydrogen Peroxide at K-Mart. (the chick at the register-"are you afraid of germs?") Anyway, we spent a majority of the nite bathing the dog, a project she doesn't like anyway, but she didn't fight it too much. She knew.
