Cody vs the Skunk

Well, my biggest fear (besides a coyote of course) has been realized.  We had been seeing this skunk around  the neighborhood and had a run-in with it in the backyard once before.

A couple weeks ago, Cody woke me up barking because he needed to go out.  It was 3am and although this is super annoying, it's not uncommon for him. Long story short, he got sprayed.  It could have been worse.  I pulled him into the house as soon as I realized there was a skunk.  In the morning, I called his groomer and she said no tomato juice.  Just mix peroxide, baking soda, Dawn dish soap and water together and bathe him in it.   This mixture was a lot less messy than tomato juice and got the smell completely out.  I scrubbed him and left it on for maybe 2-5 minutes, rinsed and the smell was completely gone!

Hahah oh nooo! But good to know there is a natural remedy out there that takes care of the stink! I had no idea.
