Pepé Le Pew strikes.....AGAIN! 

A few days ago Li of Life’s a Stitch,wrote about her little dog Gracee and her dreaded run-in with a skunk. I commented at the time that fortunately, Miles had managed to stay skunk free. This despite the fact that I think the entire Lower Mainland is rife with the smelly critters this year.

Well, of course I spoke too soon. This past Wednesday night Miles went out for his evening jaunt and as soon as the door was opened he ran straight for whatever was russling in the garden and came face to backside with Pepé Le Pew! Fortunately we had the ingredients listed in Li’s skunk deoderizing concoction and after a scrub down on the back deck, a rearranging of Miles’ sleeping accommodations, (outside instead of inside) a load of laundry and a shower for me, it was bed time for all, sometime after midnight.

He come back from his unplanned day at the local doggie groomers on Thursday evening and judging from his demeanor, I’m sure it was a little more stressful than his usual day of lounging on the daughters’ beds and barking at the mailman.

Time to add hydrogen peroxide to the grocery list so as to replenish the emergency supply under the kitchen sink for next time….because in this neighbourhood, there’s sure to be a next time…..
