S'up with the skunks in the Northeast this year? I've had 2 dogs for the last 3 summers and this summer is THE Summer Of The Skunked Dog. First, Alvin walked into a skunk cloud about in Late July (Skunked!). Two nites ago Simon tangled with a baby skunk (Sir Simon the Cockapoo Dog Gets Skunked!). I don't live in the woods. I live in a residential neighborhood and can't figure out where the stinky ones are coming from! The dogs are being doglike and protecting their territory. Anyone else have this problem?
