Spring offerings........of a different kind

Well, Clarabelle farm-dog, did it again. What ? you ask. Protected the chickens. From a SKUNK. Which led to this post:
How to de-skunk your dog......
We've all tried the tomato juice thing with varying results, right?
This is what we've found that seems to really work.
1 quart of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap
Thoroughly shampoo dog with this mixture being careful not to get it near or in their eyes. Rinse off immediately and well with lots of water and then wash with their regular shampoo, if needed.
(usually we don't need to do this step)
This has really worked for us, several times. Between our protective dog (Clarabelle) Our Stupid dog (Gunner) and our curious dog (Walter) we seem to use it several times a summer !
