Remember this little guy?
This morning, after I let in my labrador retriever, Bailey, I noticed a funny smell. My head was kind of clogged up, so I thought it smelled like something electrically hot. I spent a while trying to figure out what might be causing the smell, but finally gave up and went upstairs to do some quilting. Strangely, I smelled the same smell upstairs - visions of ancient electrical wiring going bad went through my head! Finally, my husband woke up and hollered up the stairs, asking me if I smelled something chemical up there. Well, apparently the smell wasn't just in my head! So we started trying to figure out what it was together. I came downstairs, and the smell seemed to get worse down there - what was it? Unable to pin it down, I went back upstairs while my husband stayed downstairs. Hmmm. The smell was not as bad now, though still there. Finally, my husband called up, "I know what it is!" I came downstairs, and he told me to sniff Bailey. Big mistake!!! She absolutely reeked of the smell, and the reason I smelled it everywhere I went is because she was following me around the house! Thankfully, the groomer opens up at 8 a.m. on Sunday, so I called them up frantic for a doggy bath. They told me they wouldn't be able to get to her until after noon, but I bullied them into letting me drop her off right away (I'll probably pay for that someday!) Off to the car - - - which I put her inside of, simply because I might have been arrested had I made her run alongside! But my husband really owes me one........ As soon as the groomer walked into the room, she said, "Oh - - - skunk!" But when she got closer, she modified that to "dead, with overtones of skunk"! Oh, joy!! My dumb dog apparently rolled (or should I say "wallowed") in a dead skunk last night! Six hours and $50 later, I got my dumb dog back......
So be careful what you wish for - I wished for something interesting to write on my blog about and see what happened?
Wishing you a much less eventful week!!
