Around 9pm last night I was letting my dog out one last time before he went to bed. He was on a leash because we don’t have a fenced in backyard.
The neighbors from across the street watch from their front porch as this whole scene begins to unfold.
A rustling in the bushes + my very nosey dog + me holding my 54 pound dog by a leash = disaster.
Reggie hears a rustling in the bushes so of course he pulls me over so that he can investigate. At this point I’m thinking that it’s this mama cat who watches over her babies that are hidden in our bushes.
Reggie pulls himself further into the bushes as I try to pull him out, but he wouldn’t budge. Instead he just starts sniffing for the animal. Meanwhile I can hear the neighbors from across the saying to one another “Oh man that girl’s having trouble with her dog.”
The mysterious animal begins to move while my dog eggs it on causing it to get angrier as I tried to pull Reggie away.
What comes next “AHHH! REGGIE GODDAMNIT YOU PISSED OFF A GODDAMN SKUNK. GET YOUR ASS OUT OF THOSE BUSHES NOW!” I shouted.
After pulling Reggie out of the bushes he repeated shook his head and sneezed. The skunk had sprayed him right in his face and the smell was god awful. I then took Reggie by his collar and as I walked him back around the house and back into the apartment I yelled at him saying “A skunk you had to piss off skunk damn to Reggie. EWWW! God you stink. The neighbors continued to watch as I took him inside.
Once I got inside I rubbed tomato juice all over his face and then I took the tomato juice into the shower with me and I spent the next 20 to 30 minutes scrubbing myself with tomato juice and soap.
When I went to bed Reggie along with the entire house still smelled like skunk but I was stink free.
