Okay. This is a very bad thing. A very, VERY bad thing. I've debated with my conscience about whether or not to share this, but you are responsible pet owners and aren't going to abuse this little trick. It is for EMERGENCY USE ONLY . . . Someone scared a skunk the other night, and all three of mine came in positively reeking. No one had taken a direct hit, but there must have been several skunks because you couldn't step outside without getting the taste in the back of your throat. It was truly awful. It was also after 11:00 p.m. and there was no bathing three skunky dogs in the shower at that time of night. It was so bad I couldn't even resort to putting them in the laundry room until the next day because the smell would have just permeated everything. So I did the unthinkable. I covered their eyes and lightly misted them with Febreeze. I know, I know, and I'm almost ashamed but there really wasn't much else to do. I knew I'd be washing them the next day, and we use the stuff on sofas (which they lay on), mattresses and other things that skin comes in contact with, so I did it. It worked like a charm. Again, this is for EMERGENCIES ONLY. Please don't Febreeze your doggy-smelling dog! It's just a good thing to know in case you get caught in a skunk emergency. If your dog has skin allergies don't even do it then - just get used to the skunk smell until you can take care of it in a conventional way. It's kind of funny when you think about it . . .
