    October is "oh no, the dog's been hit by a skunk again!" month

    Yup, several years in a row now, one of our two dogs meets a skunk in our yard, within 50 feet of the house. They lose the argument, every time.
    I always though a skunk spraying was supposed to be enough of a deterrent that a dog would "never do that again". For some reason these normally very intelligent animals see that skunk again, and think "this time I'll get him!".

    Worst part, apart from gagging while trying to clean him off, is how it gets on everything, and you stop smelling it after a few hours. Oh, it isn't gone...you just stop smelling it. Last time this happened, we thought we were ok, and went out as a family. Stopped in the bank to take care of something, and 20 paces across the room we heard a teller say "do you smell skunk?". It lasted about 2 weeks....and we weren't even the ones to get sprayed, nor were we wearing anything that we wore while cleaning up the mess.

    I find that one works rather well even if it is not as satisfactory as pouring cold tomato juice over dog and watching him squirm. The smell on dog will keep coming back for months every time he gets wet. It takes few days to get the smell out of your hands so it is good idea to use gloves when you wash him.

    Man this happened to my dog once while I was still a youngster. I closed the door to my room, put towels under the crack and made sure that smell wasnt going near my things lol. I didnt hear any complaints, and the smell did seem to clear itself up and a good dog scrubbing.

    I think the best solution is to make sure the skunk loses the next round.... just shoot him

    My dogs are white german shepherds, so I get to include heavy pool chlorine when getting skunk stench out of them. I get a big plastic bucket from walmart, fill it with water, tomatoe sauce, and chlorine. I mix it, then put them down in it.... scrub a few minutes, and set them free...... then I run otherwise they will get right next to me in revenge and shake the water off. Then I have to wash them again to get the sauce out of their thick fur. You cant let the sauce dry at all on them as that is what absorbs the smell. If any dries on them, the smell will come back unless you use chlorine.

    Yeah, but I doubt they knew it was you. I hope you're not worrying about it!
