No pictures today, Mom says. But she wants you all, especially Maggie & Mitch, to know Buddy had anaventure last night. She said Maggie & Mitch gave him the idea. Buddy's gonna get anuther bath this afternoon, but it will be alot different than the one he got Sunday.


1 quart peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
2 tablespoons dishwashing liquid (I use Ivory Liquid because Dawn isn’t quite strong enough for this kind of problem)

Mix the above ingredients in a plastic bucket and sponge all over the dog. Mixture must be used immediately. Wash pet promptly and
thoroughly, working the mixture deep into the fur. KEEP IT AWAY FROM YOUR EYES and YOUR DOG’S EYES.  Leave remedy on for about 5 minutes or until the odor is gone. Some heavily soiled areas may require a repeat wash & rinse.
For very large pets one quart of tepid tap water may be added to enable complete coverage. Rinse very thoroughly and dispose of all remaining mixture.

(p.s. it wasn't a skunk, it was anarmadillo. but it was dead so it smelled almost as good as a skunk. )

Love ya lots

I thought the cure for stink was tomato juice? Shows how many times my dogs were ever exposed to stink... other than the normal kind.

There was a skunk on my neighbor's driveway that had died and stunk so badly. I told my son it was sleeping! He told me to go give him a bear to sleep with. I stayed far away! But, an armadillo?? Ewww, gross!!! That must not have been a fun day for you!!
Love, Lashes
