Sudden stink sends rat terrier scurrying


     I’d smelled a skunk a few hours ago.  I had to close up the house the odor was so strong so the skunk had to have been nearby.  After the stink dissipated, I reopened the windows and inside doors.  The breeze from front to back was glorious.  It’s so nice to have seasonal weather back.

     It was about then when I heard my next-door neighbor come home.  I hailed her from my door and we talked for a few minutes.

      As she went inside, I warned her not to let her dog out without looking in the yard first but…  The next thing I knew I heard the dog bark, bark, YIPE!  I closed my windows and doors again. 

     The skunk didn’t get the little dog.  She is quite fast, but from what I understand it was a narrow escape.  I am surprised she had the good sense to retreat.  Had it been either one of mine they wouldn’t have backed off or I’d be bathing them about now…
