I've spent a lot of time on my own blog lately... rereading this post.
I heard his strange barking as the dogs has run on ahead to a favorite swimming hole. I called them both as I ran toward the entrance where I found Mabel running back to Momma! She was kinda freaked. I phoned Bart's Mom as we walked back. We were a good 75 yards down stream from the incident when suddenly there's the skunk again, tail UP!
I leashed up Mabel and had the hardest time with Bart... he wanted no part of the skunk but he knew he didn't want to be near Mabel! After a gag inducing drive home, I knew the drill. But not the proportions! Thank goodness I wrote the recipe down.
One soaking of the baking soda / peroxide / Dawn +
One thorough soaking of Skin So Soft and another soaking of the baking soda+
One Hairy Beast shampoo+
and she's "almost" skunk free! There is a faint hint of it and I'm sure there will be for a month or so.
My poor baby!
