Heh, heh…did I say I was going to post more this year?

Well…oops.

Yes, we have been silent for about two months now. For a dog that’s like…well, two months.

Spring did end, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. The hot times are here again and boy, has it been really hot! One night last month it was so hot I was getting sick so Mom gave me a bath. Ugh. It was awful!

But I did feel better afterwards…until two hours later when I had my first skunk encounter. I hardly even saw it! I went outside to pee, walked to my usual spot and BAM! Right in the face! Man, are they stinky! I had ANOTHER bath that same night but this time I got into the bath willingly – my first time ever.

Mom and Daddy did a real good job getting the stinky off me. To all you pooches out there, don’t let your peoples use tomato juice – it doesn’t work! What worked for us was a mixture of Baking Soda, Peroxide and dish soap. Mom scrubbed it in real good, left it on for about fifteen hours  and then rinsed me off.

Okay, I exagerate. It was only five minutes, but it felt like half a day!

Mom says be careful mixing Baking Soda and Peroxide. They can fizz and go BOOM!

Now Mom and Daddy are real careful when they let me out at night. Daddy always looks around first before I go out and Mom actually steps outside and yells warnings to the skunks.
