Brindejon farm is a dog paradise, lots of places to run, interesting smells, and many different types of animals. Yesterday, Elly found a dead skunk. Interesting smell, she decided to roll on her back across this dead skunk, giving her a decided odor. And then she came home proud of herself as if saying “Look Dad, I found some new perfume”. She was a little surprised when everyone wanted nothing to do with her and when she got kicked outside. And Elly did help choose the afternoon activity for Bob and I–tomato baths.
First step, visiting the local store. Kate was happy, she got some more driving practice. There, we debated if 2 gallons of tomato juice would be enough before returning back to the farm. Then the show started with Elly getting doused in tomato juice. This was followed by shampoo and more water. Repeat multiple times. Elly was not happy.
In the meantime, Sadie my parents dog, was intently watching the proceedings from a safe distance beyond the porch.
Eventually the process was done, sort of clean dog
And last night, she slept very soundly after her adventures. And the message for today “STAY AWAY FROM DEAD SKUNKS”
