Yes, Shorty got Skunked again.
If any of you live out in the country... and you have dogs.... and you have skunks, you will more than likely have need of a good de-skunking recipe at one time or another...
Well, this is a good one. It is very easy, and it really works. I have tried quite a few of them in the past, including the old "Tomato Juice Remedy", none of which work very well. But this one, this one is amazing. I have used this one on Shorty many times, and I have to say it does the trick... almost 100%.
Do we really have to go through this... I mean I don't really see what the problem is.

Shorty's Deskunking Recipe
1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 Cup Baking Soda
2 Teaspoons Liquid Soap
1. Mix all three ingredients together in a plastic, ceramic, or glass container (apparently metal causes a wrong chemical reaction, so don't use a metal container)
2. Sponge onto pet, working it into doggies hair thoroughly. Let set 5 minutes (or more if it seems necessary). Be careful to avoid eyes (not an easy task, since most of the time Peppe L' Pew's missile is aimed, fired and executed right between the eyes of poor helpless and defenseless "Shorty" type doggies. Okay, helpless and defenseless is probably taking it a little too far... we might need to inquire after the skunk).
3. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
I hope you won't need this recipe, but if you do I am so glad to share it with you.
As an update, I have used this recipe several times…. because well, Shorty gets skunked a lot…. it works every time. The key is leaving the mixture on your pet for 3-5 minutes; which gives the formula time to work.
