Colorful Lizards, Cleaning Collars and Eye Drops!

 Here are a few highlights from the past few weeks!

 We have a new friend that has been spotted more than once around our porch.  He is a fast little blue tailed lizard. Isn't he the cutest?!?

 Some of our collars have been getting dingy so Buttercup helped us wash them by paw.  Tide works great to get them looking brand new and smelling fresh!

While giving me one of my numerous skunk related baffs momma noticed my right eye, which has a cataract, was red when my left eye was not.  So she had Dr. Flanary take a look at it.  Dr. Flanary stained my eye green to look for a scratch or ulcer but found nothing and determined the redness came from my cataract making my eye inflamed.  So now I has to have drops at bed time.  In one week I will have to have my eye rechecked.  Getting old is no fun! :(

Skunk-ified Country Poodles

 Our time in skunk jail was long and hard mentally!  We were forced to eat our meals, snacks and sleep in skunk jail!  We spent 23 hours locked up cause we stunk. We only got out a few times a day to go outside LEASHED to pee.  They were horrible conditions!  And it gets worse...

 All of our beds and toys were taken from us!!!

Momma handled us with gloves, spayed the room with air freshner ALOT and caked our furs with baking soda/dawn/vinegar/peroxide mixtures!

The night we got sprayed we got sprayed we were loaded up in the car, and forced to sit on the mudflap, and hauled to the clinic for our first bath.  So as a result our car stunk!  Momma emptied bottles of lysol into it but nothing helped except a ton of airing out!  Only now a month later its finally quit smelling.

In the rush to get us to the clinic for a baff momma forgots to take out out stroller and well it stunk too.  Took a wee for it to air out but smells fine now! :) Thank dog cause what is a mature poodle like me supposed to do with no stroller!?!?!

 Momma's heart sank once she realized our tags, rubits and collars smelled!  Bobo's worse than mine as he took a direct hit...I just got a mild spray.  BOL There is an up side to not being first at everything!  ;)  But a 2 week soak in vinegar, dawn, baking soda and peroxide saved both collars, both rubits and our name tags.  Our soft plastic homeagain tags sadly were goners and were tossed away!

 And after many scenes like this one....

We are free country poodles once again.

Since Bobo did take the bigger hit he still kinda smells if he gets wet but its mild.  Not like the first night.

Ewww I think he got a wiff of himself! :)

Shake it off brother!  It feels good!

Oh my poodle doodles!

Brother says it wasn't worth this much baff time to chase a wild animal!

Momma hopes we has learned our lesson and threatens that if we do it again we will be sleeping outside.  I don't think she is serious but ya never knows!

Non stinky Wags and Licks,

Note From the momma: They only had to spend 72 hours in jail.  Mollie Got released first and that depressed Bobo to the extreme but they both lived.  Im not sure my nose will ever be the same after smelling it but thankfully its all gone!  The vinegar, peroxide, baking soda and dawn mix really did the trick and highly recommend it if your pet get sknunked.  Rub it on the dog and soak the collars/accessories.
