More about our resident skunk
Skunks are nocturnal – or at least they are supposed to be. Someone forgot to tell “our” skunk that. So far he has sprayed a neighbor at 5pm and a neighbor’s kid around 5:30pm.
Well last night we came home around 5pm and Sephora sprinted into the back yard because she saw Xena (our black and white Newfoundland) in the back yard. At least she thought she did but Xena was still securely in the house. I yelled to stop chasing whatever she was chasing because Xena was in the house. She insisted there was a black and white “dog” in our yard and she needed to catch it. Oh she was determined. My mother in law and I kept trying to convince her it was a skunk and to stop chasing it. Fortunately, the skunk was frightened enough to find a place to hide or I would have spent my evening de-scenting my child!
Never a dull moment when a skunk thinks you are his family…
