a dog with that not-so-fresh feeling
WARNING! The tacky factor here is high.
As usual, Seth has to let the dog out in the middle of the night. Miles bursts into night, running off the bunnies and marking the trees, while Seth sleeps on the kitchen table. They come back, Seth slinking into his covers and Miles sliding beneath my side of the bed.
I relax toward sleep and Seth into a snore, when we both sit straight up: WHAT is that Smell?!
Seth runs for the bowl of treats to lure Miles out of our room, and I fitfully chatter about how the dog has just died. I breathe through a sheet.
Miles has tangoed with a SKUNK!
Seth puts him in the doghouse outside, and I sleep on the couch because I feel poisoned.
Next morning, I call the vet and ask what to do. The receptionist puts me on hold, goes to ask the doctor, and comes back matter-of-factly saying, “The Doctor says to use Massengill Douche. Good Luck.”
So, yes, I go to the grocery store as mortified as the first time I bought tampons. I go through the self checkout line. I sit them on the kitchen table, and my company and I giggle for hours, making 8th-grade boy jokes and imagining how Seth is going to take the news. “Oh Babe, here’s the douche the vet said you have to use on the dog.”
So my brave man does it, gagging all the while, squirting each bottle of powdery vinegar solution on the the dog’s skunky hair, and I, of course, because I am a blogger, took pictures, which within itself is funny.
