Ty: Buster really did it this week!

Buster: How was I supposed to know that black and white kitties make such a big stink?

Ty: Just when you started to grow on me – you go and antagonize a skunk!

Buster: Good thing DogMa had packed all the stuff and saved the de-skunking recipe in her phone.

De-Skunking Ingredients

Ty: Lickity-split she whipped up one bottle of peroxide, two tablespoons of baking soda, and a quarter cup of Dawn dish washing liquid and then …

Buster: … she scrubbed …

Buster's Bath

Ty: … and scrubbed …

Buster's Bath 2

Buster: … and then I rubbed the rest off on your bed.

Rubbing Off On Ty's Bed

Ty: Not cool. But at least you didn’t stink.

Buster: The moral of the story: Err on the side of caution when encountering wildlife.

  1. the baking soda, peroxide and dish soap works the best…i have been thru it a dozen times between dogs and cats…nothing i bought works better than this concotion!

  2. I’ll have to remember that one. The last 2 times it happened I just used the Massengill. The dogs haven’t run off after that but we also have moved out of the country. I can’t wait to go back to living in the country…skunks, porcupines and all!
