Quilt With Us

I chose 4 lucky students to help me bathe Daisy, had them put on scrub jackets and latex gloves. Then we went into the treatment room, but were unable to use the tubs because workers were there putting in a new vent system. So we took all our stuff and towels into the kennel room, ran the hose into there and proceeded to give Daisy the bath of her life. Two baths with the hydrogen peroxide mixture, letting each one sit on her for about 5 minutes. We thought she smelled pretty good then, so called one of the workers to come in and smell - said we needed a new nose. Ugh - still bad.

So then we soaked her in vinegar and let that sit about 20 minutes while we cleaned the blankets and kennel she had been in. After the vinegar, dog shampoo - twice - and then finally dog cologne. We were all soaking wet, smelly, and laughing. The rest of the class all had math worksheets to be working on - my crew was excused from that, of course.

When we went back into classroom, we thought we smelled ok, but the rest of class didn't think so. Daisy went up to several people and her head still reeked. OH well.

I joke that I won't have to worry about locking my car again or even rolling up the windows. I mean, who is going to steal something from a car that smells like cat pee (from this winter) and skunk. Now ALL the dogs have a slight skunk smell, and I bet my house does too. But now I'm used to it...LOL.

So funny! And what a great lesson you taught your kids--it's all about attitude, isn't it?

Suzanne, I thought like BJ that tomato juice might work. Oh well, if you are used to it now, eventually it will wear off of Daisy.

What an adventure. Is tomato juice still used to get that smell out? Hmmmm

Well then, the only thing left to try are clothespins - for your nose!

I feel or rather smell for you. Hope it turns into perfume someday soon.

I had a dog a few years ago that got hit with a skunk. I went to our pet store and got "skunk clean or kleen" I don't know if it's still on the market but that worked really good in neutralizing the odor. My son ran into a skunk when he was a teenager with his bicycle and that was almost worse then getting a dog rid of the smell. lol I had a hard time getting the smell out of the house. Sounds like you and the kids made it a fun experience. lol
