Skunk, 1 Chance, 0

As a rite of passage for every dog, Chance had his first encounter with a skunk this morning. Chance lost. Actually, Chance could care less...Amy lost. It occurred at about 5:00 this morning. As is the morning ritual, Adam let the boys out while he was getting ready for work, when he let them back in, that familiar aroma filled the house.

The "good" news? Kobe had a similar encounter last summer and in researching how to get rid of the stink, we did come across a good way to accomplish this.

-Get on an outfit that you don't care much about, cause you'll be tossing it in the trash when you're done. This includes gloves if you've got 'em.
-Get a roll of paper towels and start wiping your dog down - this takes off a lot of the oil from the skunk spray.
-Next, wash your dog with some water and a mild detergent. We use dish detergent.
-Towel dry if it's winter and you feel badly for your shaking puppy dog.

Chance is quite proud of himself, he doesn't think that he lost:

Bunny Sitting

Some friends of ours had to go out of town due to a family emergency, so we agreed to care for their rabbits while they are away. For those of you that don't know, we lost our bunny Lily to an owl (we suspect) late last summer. So, we've been bunny-free for awhile. Anyway, these bunnies are a breeding pair (they're meat rabbits)...But, as you know, when a critter comes into our house, while they're here, they're spoiled.

We keep them in the mudroom and we let the boy hop around for awhile at night. They don't have names, but we call the boy (the brown one) Tucker and the girl (the white one) we call Crazy Lab Rat Bunny - because, well, she's mean. Here they are:

(Look at those ears! So darn cute.)
