Chasing skunks... and hunting!

This is our chocolate lab... Belle
The retired fireguy has trained
all of our labs to hunt ~

This picture is of Belle after
she scared up a skunk!!!

The mud on her face is self-induced...
After the skunk sprayed her she dropped
to her knees and was rubbing her face in the mud ~
Apparently, she took the brunt of the spray in her face
and her MOUTH!!!

I found a homemade concoction on the internet
to bathe her in which worked amazingly!! It was a mixture
of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dish soap ~

Here is our Belle a day later back out doing what she does!
Luckily she figured out the difference between
a skunk and ducks!!!

Aw! How cute is she! even with the muddy face :o) It's good to hear that the mixture you found worked so well! Thank goodness for internet info!

Blessings & Aloha!
I wanted to let you know that I am excited that I got your art orders of your kids up on my facebook page. If you can comment underneath them, that would be awesome!
Agh!!!! Blog time is so limited, but wanted to stop by and say hello and let you know.

Poor dog. A skunk sprayed our dog a few years back. We tried the old tomato juice method with mixed results. I'll have to remember your hydrogen peroxide treatment.
