Dogs, cats, horses, turtles – you name ‘em – I loved them
all. And I still do. That’s one of the reasons why I enjoyed our Wines, Washes
and Wagging Tails event so much. Each and every dog was sweeter than the one
before and I gave my share of hugs and kisses to every one. Please check out
our Facebook page to view the photos that Haley King, our resident photographer, snapped that day and see how much fun we had.
Unfortunately though, two nights later, a couple of my dogs
(Pepper and Nutmeg), after having been bathed and looking and smelling
fantastic, decided it would be a great idea to get to know a skunk that lives
on our property. Yes! They were sprayed. What a stinky mess! But, my clever
husband knew what to do and bathed them quickly in a mixture of hydrogen
peroxide, baking soda and a bit of hand soap. They are mostly back to normal, but certainly not as sweet smelling as they
were last weekend. Maybe a final touch-up with Aveda’s Rosemary Mint shampoo
might do the trick. Heck, it always works for me!
