Sierra here.HAH HAHAAHAHAHA! Sorry...can't help myself. Newsflash from Deb on the home-front.
Our poor dog Kane got skunked tonight after his walk. We came home and a skunk had found his way onto our back deck which is where our very courageous, doofus of a dog found the skunk. He was sprayed in the face, mostly his eyes and mouth. He came flying back into the house rubbing his face on the wooden floor. I noticed his eyes were shut. Oh my God, I started to freak out. (I do that well) We scrubbed his face immediately with warm water and worked on the eyes until he was able to open them then put him into the tub. I took a wet, warm cloth and washed out his mouth once we had his eyes open and seeming ok. We bathed him all over. Once out and looking ok I offered him food to try to rid him of the taste. He did eat a bit and eventually drank water. Lordy Lou.....all this in 10 minutes. I stayed up with him for hours to be sure he was ok. He is but he is awfully quiet. Looks like a dog that's been scolded. Poor old guy. In 10 years this is the 4th time he's been skunked. He's not a quick learner in this department but to be fair I do believe he was trying to protect us. Now we'll just die from the stink.
My house smells to high heaven and will for some time. For now, NO VISITORS PLEASE.
