My friend and I were out with our dogs this afternoon, walking along the railroad tracks and gleaning walnuts in the orchard next to the tracks. The dogs were having a grand old time running up the embankment and through the marshy ground and puddles in the orchanrd. Suddenly, Jobi made a beeline for the tracks with Judah in hot pursuit. When we got up there we found a dead skunk (train vs. skunk, train won) and the dogs rolling away in it. I couldn't get them off for anything! Thank goodness my friend's dogs had better sense! Tied them in the BACK of the truck coming home, shut them in the backyard, and grabbed the "skunk kit" out of the trailer! I was so glad to have it, but never expected to use it here in Hanford. I don't ever want to run into a live skunk, a dead one was quite enough!
Gina's skunk remedy:
Mix 1 cup Dawn dishwashing liquid with a bottle hydrogen peroxide into a gallon of water. Soak the DRY dog and let sit 15-20 minutes. I will testify, it does work!
