If you look closely you’ll see a bad bad stinky dog’s nose poking out from inside the bathtub. For the second time this week, Raymond found a dead thing in the dog park and rolled in it. Tuesday I took him to the new groomer who is two blocks away, but as great a job as she did, I didn’t feel like paying for grooming twice in one week.
One of the older guys who hang out at the dog park in the mornings suggested this miracle dog de-stinking mix: baking soda, shampoo and hydrogen peroxide in a bucket (actually, he suggested dish soap but I thought I’d at least give Mr. Stinky some shampoo). So I put a towel on the bottom of the bathtub to keep Mr. Stinky from slipping, tied his leash to the washcloth-rod (which I had installed with these situations in mind) and sponged him down with the contents of the de-stinkifying bucket.
It worked! He no longer smells like what I hear is a dead cat.
