Subject: BS: It wasn't a skunk...
From: SINSULL
Date: 05 Oct 07 - 08:38 PM

Seamus is visiting. He got all excited about something he saw in the back yard. I foolishly let him out thinking it was a local dog who comes to visit. He chased somethin all over the yard. I caught sight of something white and the size of a cat but it wasn't.
Then came the smell - sort of garlic and grass. Seamus rolled and rolled in the grass. I got him on the porch and came him and his face a going over with a wet cloth.
He stinks but not of skunk. Garlic. grass. I don't know.
Anyone know what he upset? What do I do about the stink?

When you get a heavy dose of skunk that's exactly what it smells like. You will eventually notice it less and less as your olfactory receptors become saturated, but it will still be around for quite a while.

Did you try this?

    Paul Krebaum, a chemist, invented a new more effective formula for de-skunking a dog. Mix in an open bucket or bowl:

    1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
    ¼ cup baking soda
    1 teaspoon of strong liquid soap such as dishwashing detergent.

    Mix the ingredients in an open bucket or bowl. The mixture will fizz. Wet your dog and thoroughly massage the solution into the coat. Be sure to keep the mixture out of the dogs eyes, nose and mouth. If it is necessary to apply it to the dogs face, very carefully use a washcloth or a sponge. After applying the mixture to all parts of your dog that may have been sprayed, rinse the dog thoroughly.

    *Warning*

    This mixture can be explosive, as it will fizz and creates pressure if it is enclosed in a seal tight container. Never store unused portion, always discard. Be sure to only mix in an open container and do not try to store or cover it in any way. Do not get the mixture into the dog's eyes, nose or mouth.

I know I'm bein' a pain in the arse. Dogs ain't too bright. And he won't think twice about chasing the skunk again, either. I had a dog that took a dislike to porcupines. I pulled quills out of him on four different occasions. I swore I'd shoot him if it happened a fifth time. It didn't. Nothin' to do with telling the dog I'd shoot it, which I would have. Just that we moved to the city shortly after that and there ain't too many porcupines in the city. Stupidest sonuvabitch I ever met in my whole life.

Before you pull out porcupine quills, cut off the end of the quill. This deflates the quill and makes it easier and less painful to remove.

The tomato juice Rx is a wives tale. I've used it on several occasions and all it pretty much does is create a new odoriferous compound which is a combination of onion, garlic and tomato - something like pasta sauce - come to think of it. The peroxide, baking soda, detergent formula is supposed to be the most effective neutralizer, from all accounts that I've heard, and what I will use if ever the occasion presents itself.

Bobad's formula was vetted and deemed effective by the Mythbusters.

The nice thing about nasty smells (did I just say that?) is that you sense of smell is the only sense that actually doesn't register smells that remain the same for a while. The problem is that Seamus would probably move, or you would, thus intensifying the smell.

I think you are all nuts about that.

It just smells like SKUNK.

Get some Natures Miracle De Skunk or whatever it is, or live with it for a few weeks and a few baths with nice smelling shampoo.

Just Google Natures Miracle, there are several different de smell things from it.

After the third or fourth bath formula attempted, punctuated by banishments, Seamus will get the idea that for some weird reason, you just like to freeze him and then send him out cold and wet again. He will learn to run from baths because it will amount to aversion therapy.

Clearly this calls for a houseparty where each person brings their own idea of what might work, plus treats, and takes a turn washing the dog. If enough alcohol is involved you will even be able to seem like you're having fun with it, at least. :~)

Can dogs be Febrezed?


After a housefire they run a huge ionizing machine to take the horrible smoke smells out of the air. Do skunky dogs do well incarcerated with same? You could call your local fire-cleaner-upper-afterer and ask if they deskunk.

New definition of friend: someone who lets a friend's dog skunk your hosue, try to clean the dog, and keep the dog until claimed.

The fire crew can at least de-skunk your house when the dog goes home.

They say an onion smells up the air less if you peel it under running water. I guess you can't just park the dog under a running hose at this time of year. But can he have a good long swim somewhere?

Third glass of wine and I still smell it. Poor Seamus is sitting on his dog bed out in the cold (it was 80 today) and feeling a bit chagrined.
Kendall and Jacqui are back on Monday. Maybe a dog grooming is in order.
Time to disinherit the skunk family - bright lights, loud music and moth balls. I may have to move out too.

Put some Vicks Vaporub under your nose. That's what cops use when they have a smelly corpse.

At least the tomato juice was "plausible" on Mythbusters. That's what we always used, though Nature's Miracle is great stuff.

TOMATOE JUICE WAS A WASTE OF TIME & MONEY WHEN MY BEAGLE LADY GOT SKUNKED.

A neighbor told me the best cure was Massengill Douche. She had some in the house & volunteered to do the job as I had to go to work. When I came home my Lady was fine. Took a day with AC on to rid the house of the skunk smell though.

Since the smell is probably concentrated in the dog's fur, why not shave him bald and then give him a nice bath? Kendall would be surprised to have a Maine Hairless when he returns, and Seamus could wear nice jackets until his hair grows out again. You could even trap the skunk and make it into a cute little hat for Seamus to wear for a while, sort of a Davy Crockett kind of thing (it will help immensely it the skunk is dead when you do this).

Why, I'll betcha that just the look on Kendall's face when he saw his bald dog with a skunk cap would be worth all the trouble!

(I've always thought skunk smelled like perculating coffee.)

Mary I found this. It may help, De-skunking your house and it gives you something practical to do, It makes sense from a chemical point of view since it sounds like there is a fair amount of Phosphine in Skunk smell and the volatile Acetic acid in the boiling vinegar should neutralise it.

I was nine months pregnant, ready to go into labor any time.
It was 11 pm at night and my collie Mandy wanted to go out
the back door. She got sprayed by a skunk.

I called a friend to help me who showed up with
a large can of tomato juice. I don't remember if
that helped at all.

My advice- open the yellow pages and look under
pet grooming. Call a professional. They will know
how to best get the smell out as much as possible.

Good luck.

I don't think he got it straight in the face. But he was so fascinated by the smell that he rolled in it. Peroxide/baking soda concoction seems to have worked but he is still a bit gamy.
I left all the windows open and all the fans on last night. By now I may be immune to the smell but I think the place is OK.
Apples and cinnamon boiling on the stove. His bed is outside airing. And the damn fool is still trying to find the skunk.
No beach trip in my car.
Funny how happy he is to stink.

Dogs and strong stinks are much like some people and loud music. (I was gonna say 'teenagers' but many aren't and I've been known to crank up the odd tune.) If it's big, whether it's sound or smell, it's good. Dogs smell any anuses they can, they sniff shit, they'll just snort rotten, drippy, putrescent dead things. Seamus probably thinks a skunk smells like the Glade ™ of the outdoors.

Friends of mine live in Hyannis and their dog chased a skunk one December night. They phoned the dog groomers, who (amazingly) were not keen on taking in a skunked Goldie on the kind of night that discouraged window opening. The groomers suggested tomato juice or better still, douche.
In the mean time dog and husband, who had also been skunked, were sent down the beach for a swim, to try and get rid of some of the smell.
So, cold, wet, salty AND skunky, all at the same time, they were not a happy pair of bunnies.
I seen to remember the douch was the most effective.

Main Entry: mauve
Pronunciation: 'mov, 'mOv
Function: noun
Etymology: French, literally, mallow, from Old French, from Latin malva
1 a : a moderate purple, violet, or lilac color b : a strong purple
2 : a dyestuff that produces a mauve color
- mauve adjective

A so-so sample;

Click. to see the cover of the book about the fellow who invented this lovely shade of purple/lilac...

In 1856, while trying to synthesize artificial quinine, 18-year-old chemistry student William Perkin instead produced a murky residue. Fifty years later, he described the event: he "was about to throw a certain residue away when I thought it might be interesting. The solution of it resulted in a strangely beautiful color." Perkin had stumbled across the world's first aniline dye, a color that became known as mauve.

"So what?" you might say. "A teenager invented a new color." As Simon Garfield admirably points out in Mauve, the color really did change the world. Before Perkin's discovery all the dyes and paints were colored by roots, leaves, insects, or, in the case of purple, mollusks. As a result, colors were inconsistent and unpredictably strong, often fading or washing out. Perkin found a dye that would always produce a uniform shade--and he pointed the way to other synthetic colors, thus revolutionizing the world of both dyemaking and fashion. Mauve became all the rage. Queen Victoria wore it to her daughter's wedding in 1858, and the highly influential Empress Eugénie decided the color matched her eyes. Soon, the streets of London erupted in what one wag called the "mauve measles."

Mauve had a much wider impact as well. By finding a commercial use for his discovery--much to the dismay of his teacher, the great August Hofmann, who believed there needed to be a separation between "pure" and "applied" science--Perkin inspired others to follow in his footsteps: "Ten years after Perkin's discovery of mauve, organic chemistry was perceived as being exciting, profitable, and of great practical use." The influx of bright young men all hoping to earn their fortunes through industrial applications of chemistry later brought significant advances in the fields of medicine, perfume, photography, and even explosives. Through it all, Garfield tells his story in clever, witty prose, turning this odd little tale into a very entertaining read. --Sunny Delaney

The Wikipedia entry on this 'brownish-purple' color is quite enlightening:
Puce is a colour generally considered to be brownish-purple. A few sources define "puce" simply as "dark brown".[1]

English usage dates from 1787. The word comes from French; puce literally means "flea". It is speculated that it refers to the colour of a squashed flea or the colour of a flea full of blood. Another theory is that the colour name comes from the flea's droppings of digested blood, which spread out in deep red stain when water contacts them.

Well, I've been doing some research. The most likely odor culprit is butyl mercaptan (n-butylmercaptan). The antagonists for this include acetone, acids, and strong oxydizers.

So...you can get acetone at the paint store. Buy at least a gallon of acetone, and while you're there pick up a gallon of muriatic acid. The next ingredient is the hardest: liquid oxygen.

Bring 'em all home, mix well, and bath dog in mixture.

Or just get some liquid oxygen and some red fuming nitric acid....

If you can't get liquid oxygen, use liquid air.

You might possibly find downsides to handling this stuff....

To drag this thread back from colour-blindness to the original posting........White skunks do crop up from time to time. The only live (as opposed to roadill) one I have seen was nearly all white (and hanging round a dumpster in Revere, MA). Said friends in Hyannis were pestered by a visiting white skunk, which they said was quite a startling sight at night, through the patio doors. In the end they got pest control to remove it. A few weeks later a neighbour of theirs was complaining that the white skunk that he had been feeding (!) had mysteriously disappeared.

A white skunk lived under the porch of my last apartment. One night I opened the door to call in Freddie and down the street comes lumbering a huge white cat. I of course go "Here kitty kitty" and it ran towards me. Then I realized it was a skunk. Almost tame. I shut the door in time and felt bad that I had teased it into thinking a meal was being offered.

Night 1 peroxide/baking soda/ dish washing liquid scrub plus rinse outdoors with the hose.
Boiling apples and cinnamon to kill smell indoors. Windows open/fans on.
Note to self - Oust does not remove odors from the air. It paints them a nauseatingly sweet vanilla.

Day 2 Outside in the sun on his bed feeling sorry for himself and going back to the spot where he rolled looking for more.
Day 2 PM Vinegar Bath and rinse. Dry in the sun
Day 2 PPM Another vinegar scrub. Left it on to dry.
Windows open/fan on. Boiling vinegar to neutralize smell. Balsamic is best for boiling but dyes dog red.

Day 3 House smells clean or at least skunk free. Dog smells of vinegar with a faint undertone of skunk.
Windows open/fans off.

End of drama until he returns to Jacqui and Kendall. Somehow this will be all my fault.

Many thanks to Tami and Peace for sympathy and advice. Many thanks to all for varied suggestions. The rest of you - those who suggested acid, razor cuts, dye jobs, etc - I hate you all. AND have added you to my gift list!

Luckily we love the boy enough to put up with the remaining smell (I hope) but I reckon it will be time for the puppy parlour to try and dissipate it a bit more. Otherwise he might just be living in the garage for a couple of weeks.

If we can pick it up at a penny on the dollar, it would only cost $120. Of course, we could paint it a colour Seamus would like.

As for the douche-I tried to find a mention of it on MythBusters-could not find word one. (It may be a problem with my WEBTV-lots of sites require a different browser.) All I can tell you is that the douche was used by my friend on my dog---IT WORKED!
It makes sense to me-(see 10:04pm 10/06/07) and it is not hazardous to the dog.

oVer here a firm favourite for dogs to roll in to smell of eau de poo is fox poop. They just love it. They roll on top of it, rub themselves in it, and generally get a really good dousing of the eau de fox toilette and then stand triumphant in their pong.

They honk! They reeek, it makes you sick. But the best thing to get rid of it is...

Tomato Ketchup (red sauce) - throw it on and wipe it off...

It might work for skunk?

I beg to differ... my aunt's dog Laddie would forgo fox turds for cow pats, despite both being available.

His favourite, and he had a knack for sniffing them out, were the ones that look dry but turn to a putrid green gurp of goo when a foot is placed firmly into the top. He would bounce onto these and proceed to roll over in it, working it into his shoulders all the way down his spine to his hips which he would waggle in a most suggestive way, to achieve greatest distribution.

He would then jump into the van or car and grin in a most endearing manner before distributing dog snot and cowshit in equal quantites to all passengers.

Fox turds he would pee on.

OK - devotion to my furry charge. I reckon that he's going to need his exercise, stinky or not and he does love swimming, which is so good for him.

I love this dog almost as much as I love his master. On that basis I will be taking him to the beach every day this week and letting him get wet, whether he ends up smellier or not. Hopefully, after a few good soakings, the smell will dissipate and the boy won't miss out on his exercise.

I'm also going to try and persuade Kendall to go shoot the skunk - otherwise Seamus is just going to go after it again next time he visits Mary! :0)

No! No! No!
The skunk stays. Tami and i discussed this. It is too late in the season for it to find a safe home so he stays. In the spring after the baby skunks are safely grown I will deal with it humanely. Bright lights and a loud radio dropped down the hole while he is out will get him to move on but probably not far enough. Animal Control will have to get him. Then the burrow will be filled in with concrete.

Seamus, I believe, has learned his lesson. Last night he went out and started for the skunk's hole. I heard TWO skunks rattling and chattering at him. He looked at me sheepishly and came back inside. But he is fascinated by the smelly spot in the yard.

He doesn't smell bad until you rough up his fur. It's in there. The first time you dry him after a swim you'll notice, jacqui.

I brought in some groceries in the usual plastic bags and left them on the floor in the kitchen. When I returned, Alice was squatting contentedly over the bags. I shouted; she ran; puddle on the clean floor.
But then I found a track of drips from the door to the kitchen. Leave it to me to buy a leaky soup can. So the house now has the homey smell of chicken soup. An improvement actually. But now Alice is angry with me for accusing her (IMAGINE!) of peeing on the groceries.

There was an old skunk and he lived in a lair
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Down underneath aunt Mary's stair
A nice easy life he's leadin'

The skunk one day went walkabout
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Saw old Seamus looking out
Decided to do some teasin'

Up jumps Seamus, barking at the door
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Up jumps Mary from her snore
Rushes to do his pleasin'

He raced down the stairs to her great dismay
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
The skunk turned tail and released his spray
Hit bull's eye, he was succeedin'

Poor Seamus sat down on his bum
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Believe you me, he looked quite numb
Discomfort was fast increasin'

He rolled to the left and he rolled to the right
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Bounded back up, with a squeeze so tight
In through the door he's easin'

He ran through the kitchen and he jumped on a chair
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Aunt Mary tearing at her hair
After the pupper speedin'

She washed him with vinegar, she washed him with soap
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
Walked him on a ten yard rope
The odeur was far from pleasin'

With wat'ry eyes and heaving chest
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
She gave the cleaning all her best
Alas, she was not succeedin'

Poor Seamus now plays solitaire
Sniffin', coughin' sneezin'
The skunk is back inside his lair
Curled up to stop him freezin'
