Packing was put on hold…

August 12, 2015 

We are flying out of Baltimore today on our England-Wales trip. Yea! After work yesterday I ran around town taking care of last minute things. You know, like a vet appointment to update the dogs shots.  (Why did I think the day before I leave town was a good day to set that appointment?) Picking up socks. (How is it that I do not have enough pairs of socks to make it through a week?  And that does not include any that match.)

I got home and got the packing under way.  Feeling good about my progress I decided I had time to get a short ride in on both ponies.  I had not been able to get in a ride the past few days and the ponies we’re excited for attention.  I tacked up Poe first and headed out for a leisurely hack around the farm. About ten minutes in Daisy came racing across a hay field to catch up.  As she got closer I noticed she was running funny,  ducking her head to the ground, dragging her face… Uh oh. 

When she got closer I could smell her. Skunked. 

I cut my ride off and headed back to the house and quickly put Poe up.  I got out my dog-de-skunk kit. It consists of a bucket loaded with a bottle of dawn dish soap, a bottle of peroxide and a large box of baking soda.  *Just add water and a stinky dog*  So I did. 

Sadly it appears Daisy was sprayed in and on her mouth. She has skunk breath. The face is so hard to wash.  She is tolerant and well mannered so I got my scrub on and finished up with just enough time to feed ponies before dark.  

She dried out and the one spot is still a little rough.  So this morning she is getting another scrubbing.  And my hands too. They also smell like skunk.  

Ok, ready, steady, go!!!!
