..dodged a bullet..
« on: August 05, 2019, 11:59:48 AM »
.
4 dogs outside around 5am this morning - heard the alpha (male, Shiba Inu) seriously barking - flashlight in hand and saw the butt end of a small/young Skunk that the 2 males were "goin' after" (the 2 girl dogs standing off..)

I "think" the dogs got off without being sprayed tho the odor permeates the outside of the house in the "altercation area" - looked around for a dead Skunk but could find nothing

hopefully, the little critter escaped the backyard dog enclosure

As they say lucky dogs didn't get sprayed.

You were very lucky. About 15 years ago a skunk entered my back yard. My dog found the skunk and did his duty and protected his yard. My wife and I were sound asleep and didn't hear the altercation. The dog had a dog door and came back in the house roamed about and headed for his bed in our bedroom. About 2 a.m. I woke with a terrible headache and felt miserable. Since my nose had already become somewhat accustomed to the smell, it took about 10 -15 minutes to realize that the house reeked of the smell of skunk. It took about a week to rid the house, dog and furnishings of the smell of skunk. Not a fond memory :sick2:

Just in case you didn't know. Rabid skunks were a big problem around here a couple years ago.

Every once in while, our dogs will encounter one in the woods, and they do sometimes get sprayed.

Had mine drag one up to the back door after a nice game of tug o war with him he looked  like a stretch armstrong.
