Far Guy and I had a little trip planned..just a few days away.
Strike One: My Dad was hospitalized last Wednesday with a bowel obstruction, he has had that problem before and it usually resolves all by itself after he gets that terrible NG tube and proper hydration in a hospital setting. We waited until we were certain that he was going to be okay. And he is..however he is a tad cranky from not eating since last Tuesday. He will get out of the hospital today..I hope.
Strike Two: Late on Wednesday night..Far Guy let Chance out the front door. We accompany Chance outdoors at night..well in two seconds Far Guy was back saying Chance had been skunked. I could tell by the smell..uffda. I mixed up the liquid soap, peroxide and baking soda mixture. Far Guy used latex gloves to put the mixture on Chance. Little by little it worked it’s magic. We rinsed him off really good and allowed him in the house. The next day he was properly deodorized at the groomers. You can still smell a bit of skunky smell on his muzzle.
Strike Two and one half: I forgot the Passports at home..but we were only ten miles away…so we turned around and went back and got them. Far Guy said “ Do you really think we are meant to go on this trip? “ I said “Yes, we are going..it is only two and one half strikes.”
We dropped Chance off to visit Miney and Little Elvis. Jen and her family declared Chance “barely skunky”..although the other dogs really checked out his new smell. This was the first time we have left him with anyone overnight..he did fine and so did we..although we think he is a little miffed at us.
This is the Welcome to Manitoba Sign at the Welcome Center just across the border.
The gals inside knew right where we were going:)
