It was nearly impossible for me to get out of bed this morning. For the first time in a long time I don’t want to go to work so I kept hitting the snooze button. When I finally got up, I went about my morning routine in a fog of sleepiness. I woke the dogs up and took them to their yard, but instead of doing their business, they ran around barking.
I decided over the weekend that they could no longer go out into the main yard (we live on 5 acres) for their potty break, because our warm winter is waking up the critters. Last week they woke up a rabbit. This morning, they woke up skunk. But didn’t I just say they could no longer go out into the main yard? Yep, broke my rule the first day in and a skunk happened.
Well, that woke me up.
The dogs and skunks inspired recipe, see: REMOVE SKUNK SMELL FROM YOUR DOG FAST
We went inside and he got a lather rinse repeat with the concoction and then a real bath. He was bummed.
Then the dogs were sent back to their condo, I stripped down and threw everything into the laundry, and I ran around getting ready for the day, praying that I didn’t smell like skunk.
The smell is in my nose now. My nose hairs are hanging on to the scent like it’s the winning lottery ticket. It’s getting fainter, but every now and then I feel like I get a whiff and I panic. Is that me? The smell is so strong that it’ll probably stay with me all day, but is it on me? I know that it’s not, but I’m still wondering if I smell right now. I had no idea that today’s post would be inspired by dogs and skunks. At least I didn’t have to break out the First Aid Guide this time around! I’d rather deal with skunks and dogs than coyotes and dogs
So how’s your morning (or day) going?
