    DefaultSometimes they just amaze you....

    Just as we were getting done feeding the horses I saw Toby had found "something". It was dark and hard to see. I thought maybe it was the kitty- it was black and furry. Forrest and I were just at the gate to go out when we saw it.

    It was a skunk! I immediately closed the gate before Forrest could get out and called Toby. Now, Toby is a JRT and they have selective deafness when it comes to interesting things..... my heart sunk... but I called him.


    HE CAME. IMMEDIATELY! So did Forrest, who was looking for a way out of the field. We left out through a different gate and neither attempted to go down where Mr Skunk was!

    We got home and it was cookies all around!

    Even that smell was too much for a JRT

    There are skunks (and deer, foxes, rabbits, coyotes, squirrels, etc.) in the nature preserve in which Puff and I walk every morning.

    So I always have a bottle of Skunk-Off! at home and in the car:

    Never had to use it and hope we never do.
