Blue didn’t like the soapy hair horns or the doggie mohawk either.

Deskunking formula
1 pint hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 big squirt Dawn dishsoap

Sponge on. Scrub well. Leave the mixture on the dog for at least 10 minutes. We used a double batch for Blue, a 35-pound Australian Shepherd. His collar is soaking in a single batch of the formula.

Sorry, no skunk photos. While I immediately identified it as mephitis mephitis, your standard striped skunk, I recognized that purposeful gleam in its beady little eyes and quickly decided not to further antagonize it with the camera’s flash.
