Took the dogs out for a fast paced walk tonight, that ended up being faster than I planned! About halfway down the trail along the Columbia River, Dori charged off the trail, almost pulled me off my feet. I pulled her back as quick as I could, but not quick enough. What to my dismay should I see but a skunk! Dori took a hit full in the face and Jack got hit, too, when he had to go after her to see what was so fascinating. I called home on my cell phone and asked for a deskunking solution be prepared. We walked rapidly home, but I came back along the street so as to avoid the possibility of meeting up with the skunk on the return.
Giving two dogs baths when I got home was not how I planned to end my evening, but things don't always go as we plan. My dogs aren't very happy, but then, neither am I.
