You know it's a bad day when...

...your stoopid boy dog (Tristan) gets skunked. TWICE. Within six hours.

The only consolation is that I had two bottles of hydrogen peroxide on hand, so I could make deskunking formula:

1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1/4 baking soda
1 tsp dish soap

Mix well. Apply to dog carefully, avoiding eyes. Leave on for ten minutes if possible. Rinse well.

Works like a charm, but I do wish they'd leave the damn skunks alone! It's only FEBRUARY, for crying out loud.


  1. Tristan was just trying to rid the world of skunks. He thought he was doing you a favor.

  2. Thanks for the recipe! We have a skunk wandering the neighbourhood on and off.

  3. What happened to the Skunk-o-meter? Or is it off for repairs?

  4. The Skunk-o-meter is back! I had to reset it for 2009. Yesterday it poured rain, and I walked the dogs in it. My reward was an office that reeked of wet dog and skunk, because I didn't get the skunk odour out of the spot between Tristan's eyes!

  5. What joys of dog ownership. My pups love turd eating but I'll take that over skunking.

    I love how you made your friend anonymous in the pics below. Funny.


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
