For the third time in three years, Dixie has been skunked.
The first time , I was actually laying in bed and smelled the odor outside my bedroom window. And thought, oh no. Dixie is out there with that skunk! But it was too late. I gave her a tomato juice bath and it wore off in a few days/weeks.
The second time was when I had my appendix out this summer. It was such a whirlwind noone thought to take care of the dog – meaning put her in the house overnight. And she got skunked.
Here she is having a tomato juice bath outside
And then there was two nights ago. I went out and called for her and knew something was wrong. She normally barks a couple of times, and then runs in for her treat. She was all the way up the hill, barking her little lungs out. When she finally came it didn’t take long to figure out what she was barking at.
This time Joe decided she was not directly hit, just in the vicinity of the skunk. I’m starting to think we need a new neighborhood. Or she needs to pick better friends…..
