Stinky Dachshunds

We know what you humans think sometimes: how can such little dogs create such a big stink? Well, we LOVE stinky things, and we LOVE TO ROLL in stinky things, whether it be a little worm, bird crap, a big pile of dog-doo, a dead animal, or a deliciously mysterious stinky spot in the grass. This is what we do.
Skunks though, well that's a Dachshund of a different color, and we've gotta admit, skunks are really stinky. Enter red smooth 'Samson,' who hails from Victoria, Texas. Samson shakes soap and water from his back as he is bathed at Petsmart on Monday morning after being sprayed by a skunk late Sunday night and coming back in his doggie door to roll on the couch. Lovely. Wathen took Samson to Petsmart after attempting a few home remedies with less than desirable results. Read more and learn some tips if this ever happens to you at the Victoria Advocate.

Dachshunds are people in every way except for that - and the fact that they'll eat anything anywhere at any time...

Hans could have written this article; he's been sprayed 2.5 times (once he was just in the vicinity) since September. Ugh!

We love good smells in the yard....our deer friend Willis leaves us wonderful stuff to roll in.
It's a good thing we like the porch, too, because that's where we have to stay after we go rolling.

Thanks for linking the tips -- maybe we'll use these so we can come on in the house.

No skunks have found Jeeves in Chicago (so far) but lately he has found many many reasons to suddenly take a roll in the grass. I try to not think about what he might be smelling!

Years ago, my dachshund (Kobi) had a skunk encounter that remains seared into my memory (and probably hers!). It took quite a few days for the smell to largely subside ...but even after we thought it had gone, we were every now and then treated to a sudden pungent smell. I never confirmed this, but I liked to joke that residues from the skunk's spray were somehow trapped inside Kobi's digestive system, only being released when she passed gas :-)
