Soo, my sleep study was last night. They had a cancelation and I got my authorization. Got up at 5:45 (ungodly hour), came home let the dog out and got the fire going. Made my coffee and sat down for a few. Hubby got up and I made him eggs & coffee. Ran the sweeper, fed the dogs and horses & started after winter poop detail. Brushed the house dog and ran the sweeper.
Went to the office at 11:30. Stuffed, labeled, taped and stamped 800 mailers. Ran home by 4:30 made dinner, wolfed down my food,and ran back out the door at 6:20.
Obedience class graduation with my pup until 8:30 pm. Came home, fed him then brought the other 3 in and fed the horses. Sat down to watch Idol and at 9:45 I smelled something awful.
House dog (blaze) was outside, I jump up and fly out the door. Blaze comes when called, I smell IT outside too. Blaze is on the porch with drool slobbering out of her mouth. My first thought was that someone doused her with gasoline or a chemical. Hubby runs up to his garage as the put in his boiler for the in cement heat system and used propylene glycol so the pipes don't freeze. Dog don't go up there anyway.
Hubby keeps saying SKUNK but it smells more like a chemical....not gas, not kerosene, smells like a new perm. Her face smells, her chest, and one side so it probably is skunk or maybe male cat? I don't know, can't pinpoint but I have smelled something like this before. Did I say it stinks???
I look up the recipe that I have always knew I would need someday. Peroxide, baking soda & dawn dish detergent. Hubby wants her bathed but not in the bathtub....says I am nuts. Wants the bath in the garage and put her in the kennel (it was now 10:15) She hasn't been in the kennel for 8 years and she ain't going there now. NO NO NO...... I get a wash rag and dry bath her with my remedy. She still stinks and I can't deal with worrying about it now.............I am tired.. Good night from my stinky house, hubby hasn't shut up yet. 11:23 and I am done, it was a long day
