    I hate skunks

    I went out of town Sunday around noon, got back yesterday around 4. 28 total hours. Due to Labor Day and when I left, it wasn't financially feasible to board my dog at the animal clinic (they aren't open Sunday, so I would have had to drop him off Saturday, plus they were closed yesterday, so I would have had to pick him up today). Would have cost $57 to board him.

    So I bought a stake and a 20 foot chain so he could stay in my mom's back yard. That cost $40. Still less than $57, so I'm good to go. She called me yesterday morning. Dog got sprayed by a stupid skunk. So when I got back in town, I bought hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, soap, and rubber gloves to clean the dog off. $7 more. Woke up this morning to find the ****ing solution didn't get rid of the smell. My apartment, and every piece of fabric in my apartment, reeks of ass. Had to take off work today to take the dog to the animal clinic I didn't want to take him to in the first place to get a skunk bath. $44! For a bath! Spent $50 to rewash every piece of clothing in my apt. Spent $65 to rent a carpet cleaner and buy soap. Had to throw away my goddamned couch. Went to Rooms To Go and bought a new one. After delivery...about $600.

    All in all, I've spent and lost nearly $1000. Because of a ****ing skunk. FML

    That's the worst thing - my mom was right that it would be cheaper to board him.

    You don't know my mom. Her being right and me being wrong is like getting in to a fight with a kindergardener and getting the crap kicked out of you

    I've heard tomato sauce is the best thing to get rid of skunk odor. I don't know if that is true but that is what I have always heard. Obviously that won't work for your furniture but you could give it a shot on the dog.

    Forget what you have heard about tomato juice--it doesn't work. Skunk spray is mainly composed of low molecular weight thiol compounds. ("Thiols" are compounds with the "-SH radical" attached to a carbon atom.) In industrial applications, alkaline hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is used for scrubbing similar compounds from waste gas streams.

    Glad it didn't get in his eyes. You know what you have to use to get skunk spray out of eyes? Feminine douche

    They are fun to run over on the road though. Especially when they are dead. That way they can't move.

    But that does suck. I doubt I have ever seen a skunk, so I'm safe.
