Life with Neptune

One day you have a little pup. She so cute and sweet and adorable. You think life is so good.

Then several years later you wake up to that dog barking at 4 am. Let me repeat. 4 am!! A quick "be quiet" and all is well again. Or so I thought. As I'm starting to fall back asleep I smell something. Something Bad, something so bad it could only be a skunk!

Neptune our fearless brave doggie, while trying to protect our backyard, got sprayed across her chest. And STINK? Oh my yes. She did stink. So did our whole house as she ran in before I could shut the dog door. We quickly checked the Internet for solutions, dressed, ran to the store (okay we drove) and got peroxide, baking soda and Dawn dish washing soap.

After 3 bathes in the morning and one that evening. Neptune was allowed back inside. And after a lot of cleaning and deodorizing our house is good. Actually better than before the skunk. But don't let Neptune know that.

Her fur was all yellow where the skunk sprayed her. Now she looks so sparklely and white.
Do they say life is more fun with dogs? Hmmm....I'll have to think about that one for a minute. Okay, a minute's up. Yes it's better.



  1. Oh no, poor girl! Glad she's not smelly anymore. Skunk smell is so bad! She's a cutie!

  2. ohhhh! Lucky it wasn't her eyes!! Glad she and the house smell better now :)


  3. Give your pet their own special doggie door. Dog Doors provide your pets with the freedom to come and go as they please without requiring you to let them in and out every time. Selecting a quality Dog Door can help save energy during the hot and cold seasons. Choose a Dog Door large enough for your pet to enter and exit comfortably and safely. Dog Doors should have a closing panel for times when you want to secure your Dog Door.
