Have you ever been sprayed by a skunk?

Are you sure that this question isn't for Laura?? I seem to remember a few skunk stories from her!! No, I have never been sprayed by a skunk.

No, but one of my dogs was. It was terrible!


Not personally, but a couple dogs that I've been around have. And a few cars I was riding in. Stinks bad, doesn't it?

heck no! and i pray to god it never happens. i have heard stories and i have watched enough discovery channel and nova to know that it aint pretty. i guess if it happens you are supposed to take a bath in tomato juice or sauce to cut the stench. uh uh not me, ever.

that is just a horrible situation to be in but everyone would definitely interested in it, at least for a little while.

No. Being a city girl, I didn't even smell my first skunk until I was in my twenties. That persuaded me that being in the direct line of fire was not a thing to do.

No. I get along fine with skunks. I don't startle them, they don't startle me. We don't hand out together much but we're on good terms.

No. I have deodorized a number of dogs.

I've never been sprayed by a skunk, but I've picked up the scent while trying to clean a dog who encountered one.
