My husband woke me up early yesterday morning with the news that he had let our labrador retriever outside and she had been sprayed by a skunk. And he was sorry but he had to get to work. “See ya!” he called out.

I found a skunk defuser recipe that I had cut and saved, hoping I would never need to use it.

I spent the next hour washing the dog, twice, outside in the cold with a hose, because she smelled so bad! She was cold, I was cold. She was unhappy, I was unhappy.

But Mr. Pepe Le Pew, now he was a happy camper.

Even today…the house has a lingering aroma of Monsieur Le Pew.
