10:30pm From Out on the Border
About an hour ago my dog, Gandalf… no wait… let me remind you about Gandalf first.
He’s a Newfi mix. This means he weights 110 pounds. He is a water dog with an extremely thick and mostly waterproof coat. He is overly friendly and thinks he’s a giant lapdog…
HE . GOT . SKUNKED!
Thanks to Kris (BigToePeople) we have some awesome skunk shampoo (Read that we called and went over to pick it up at 9pm) so at the moment he’s on the back patio getting a freezing cold bath in the dark.
I honestly don’t know who I feel the most sorry for… Gandalf, who is foaming at the mouth and whining in pain, or Ryan, who is out there freezing with his eyes burning at the smell.
My poor boys!
(Feel bad for me too… this is NOT easy on my queasy stomach.)
My house smells… *SHUDDER* There are no words… I have every single candle I could find burning, my plug-ins are newly charged, I have the room spray out and I even have the dryer running with extra fabric sheets…
To top all of this off… we just found out yesterday that my in-laws are coming here for Thanksgiving.
So, in short, I have two days to get my dog and my house smelling normal, get the guest quarters ready, and cook a huge dinner!
Please God take away the queasy for just a few days! 🙂
So tonight be thankful if you are snuggling down into your nice warm bed and breathing deeply of your clean fresh air!
