Dumb but lovable dog got sprayed by a skunk last night, in our back yard. We leave the back patio door open and the dogs come and go to the fenced back yard. And we get a nice breeze. So the mutt starts making all sorts of noise then comes running in before we know what is happening.

Couple of hours of dog bathing with peroxide and tomato juice and she doesn't smell bad. But her running in has destroyed the house. It just reeks in here. We have pans of vinegar all over and have chucked out the dog bed she ran onto. I have every door and window open trying to blow it out of the house. Anyone have any other brilliant ideas? My house is eye watering, and my wife is just getting over pneumonia so this is hell on her lungs.

I'm not sure if it works for skunks, but baking powder and coffee grounds are good at absorbing odour. If you know he hit a certain spot, sprinkle baking soda on it then vacuum it up in a few hours. Bounce sheets are good for wiping stinky things too.

Good luck. If my cat ever gets sprayed she is finding a new home in the shed for a week.

Felt like I was out for one hour, that's just embarrassing, 20-something Sainters would be rolling in his grave if he saw that performance..
Posted at 5:38 in the morning too. That's rough

Skunks are the worst. Found some living under the varanda and caught 5 in three days using a trap. It's super easy to catch them. All you have to do is put sardines in the trap and they'll be caught for sure in the morning if they hang around your house.

Well, one could call the Non-Emergency line for CFD and ask/tell them about it. But it's still a pretty Buzz Killington thing to do.

oh - that's nasty!

i'm trying to remember what my parents did when the family dog got sprayed (this would have been back in the late 80's when i was still in high school)

i recall lots of tomato juice baths for the dog and my folks threw out pretty much everything the dog came in contact with right after getting skunked

my mom put out little bowls of vanilla throughout the upstairs to help mask the smell a bit... but i don't know if it had much effect.

i remember every time the dog got wet she'd wreak like skunk again. that went on for months - gross

i would call a pet store and see if they have any recommendations/products that might help

Everything that itches grinds my gears like a $%&&#. This summer has been nasty for stuff biting me. These horse fly bites are like flesh eating disease. The mosquito bites are like pox. And my hands are on fire from sun and heat related eczema. And then there's the contact dermatitis from my giant stampede belt buckle. Is this the lake of fire that's been promised to me by my granny since deciding I'm not just hopelessly single but rather secretly gay? If I read my book of Ruth will this all go away? I promise to update my plentyoffish profile soon Granny. I just need one rash to go away first, preferably the belt buckle one. I'd take a skunk in my bedroom if all three would go away. I hear that's the kind of deal they make in books like Ruth's.

People who post on social media like Instagram or Snapchat and have those stupid dog/cat effects on their face.

Jesus F'ing Christ, it looks so stupid. Stop it. Just stop.

Did I just fall through a time portal to the beginning of 2016? Did Hotline Bling just come out?

That stupid dog face effect thing has been around for a long time. But for whatever reason, recently it's been picking up steam. It's the new duck face. And it needs to die.

I think you just need cuter girls on your snap chat.

I don't have snapchat (only instagram), but I'm assuming it's on there since my Instagram is full of dog faced people now.

But seriously what is the deal with that? Why is it a thing in the first place? How is this supposed to make your tinder profile more appealing? It's just weird.

People that let their cats wander the neighborhood.

If you own an ugly brown furry cat in the Canals area of Airdrie, and it doesn't come home one of these days, call the city Municipal enforcement because I'm renting a trap the next time it stashes a dead bird under my front step

It grinds my gears that when you click the quote/YouTube/NHL/NSFW/etc. button to post on CP, the cursor appears at the end of the final closed bracket. Why can't it appear in the middle, where you want to post your content? I'd like to hit the quote button, and then paste my content in. It's more aggravating on a phone, but still aggravating enough on a desktop computer that I feel the need to post it here. Mods, can you change this please?

Thanks.

I disagree with the Football Association at times as well but this seems extreme.

I have this app for only one purpose- to entertain my 2 year old daughter. We have a lot of fun making faces.

If you highlight the text you have already typed and then click one of those buttons it will put it within the brackets.

Politics and religion aside, the guy interviewed at the end of the first video should probably be charged with assault for kicking that 102 pound woman in the face.
