HERE I COME!!!Activate laser eyes... GO!

One night,about 6 weeks ago, the Wife and I were lounging roun the house watching some forgettable TV,with our highly trained Dachshund Scrappy Marcivious Doo aka Mr.Billingsworth.Suddenly, The long haired, short legged K9 pinged on something out back and was on! Scrapp made a howling sound that my wife or myself have never heard from any beast…here’s the events as they happened
I jumped up, Scrapp was at the glass door,he almost went through I let him out and I followed, he launched off the deck and engaged what at first I thought to be a cat…wrong…skunk! oh blank sez I…what is it sez She…A blankinSkunk!…STORE !TOMATO JUICE! CAN! LARGE 3 EA. GO!…rog that sez she( she’s cool like that)
Scrapp and skunk break contact,I grab Scrapp and sniff check…Do Not Ever Do that! Yep direct hit…I almost passed out.watched Skunk go under fence.
Got hose on go,grabbed ice chest,inserted Scrapp,Started irrigating eyes,nose mouth,and neck area.wife back with tomato juice, listerine and some soaps…She gave me first can I pour it on…Scrapp’s like Dad what are you doing dude and he’s starting to flip out…second can…go! I went for the second can and Scrapp hops out of the cooler NOOOOOOh!!! he’s heading for the door to go in… I grab him … I slip in tomato juice, hit my arm and head on the brick’s of the house…arrrrrgh!holding Scrapp up with one hand and even in my pain there on my back the Skunk sprayed, Ketchup dog held to the stars struck me as funny…I thought I had a fractured arm for sure and could not continue the de-contamination procedures and my better half took over and was a trooper!and we(she) washed Scrapp
day 2. Scrapp had quite a few baths with different concoctions and myself with a badly bruised but not broken arm I went to work.
5:00am I tell my story to a fellow from (unnamed small S.American region) about the events before we headed out and he informs me. Oh Si Zorrillo(skunk),Coffee,coffee!no problem…Coffee sez I…yes yes coffee sez he.
I went home brewed a large, pot let it cool poured some on Scrapps unwashed collar…it worked the smell went away the collar smelled like coffee no skunk smell.I used the rest on Scrapp(spot cleaning and detail work)
So… coffee strong,cool coffee! takes that smell out
Long rant, but just had to get it off my chest…Coffee is the key
Thank’s take care Scrapp sez Hello!
