What's that smell?

This past weekend my worst nightmare came true.

Just as we were about to go out for the evening our dog made friends with a skunk, just outside our back door. It pretty much got only her face, it may have sprayed her directly in the mouth actually. YUM!

Apparently when you smell skunk outside that is it after it's blown around, pure skunk smells more like a big pile of burning tires. The dog didn't appreciate the bath or the dunking with tomato juice(which only sort of works but at 9pm on a Sunday before Thanksgiving it was the only option...lesson learned? Keep a bottle of skunk odor remover handy always.)

The house smells just from it wafting in through the back door! I've been busy spraying every surface with skunk odor remover. Before the skunking I already had a paranoia of things smelling bad, so now that seemingly everything smells slightly skunking I'm driving myself(and others) mad.

My sister gave me a Lampe Berger and I'm simply in love with it. Although the current scent is a bit too perfumey I plan to switch it up soon to something warm for the winter. It seems to be working a bit to get rid of the skunky smell. I'm so thankful that we only have carpet left in one room and it will soon be gone. If we still had the carpet in the living room I would have insisted that we move out!

Ugh that sucks! I had that happen in high school, I got so used to the smell that when I went to school the next day I didn't realize it had saturated into my backpack and coat; until one of my friends told me! Sooo embarrassing.

Oooo, skunks are never fun to deal with. this also has been my worst of fears.. we have had a few misses in the past and I have a feeling a stinker will come one day. P.s. Lamp Berger, sooooo amazing!! totally %100 agree with you!
